by TJ Fisher

TJ Fisher ( is the award-winning author of Orléans Embrace, an emotional portrayal of the unforgettable people and places of New Orleans. The post-Katrina work won the prestigious PMA Benjamin Franklin 2007 gold medal for “Best New Voice Nonfiction.” Known as an idiosyncratic writer of potent and poetic prose, flamboyant French Quarterite Fisher is a colorful character with a distinctive New Orleanian psyche. A consummate storyteller and chronicler of life, a lover of legacies who celebrates triumph over sorrow, she drives a 1959 pink Caddy convertible. Drawn to chase and challenge the dark crevices, melodramas and riddles of life, Fisher’s nonfiction and fiction writings center on New Orleans. The media call her diverse works “engaging ... enchanting ... evocative.” Fisher is a longtime member of the Writers Guild of America, Directors Guild of America, Producers Guild of America, Dramatists Guild, Academy of Television and Arts and Sciences, Screen Actors Guild and Actors’ Equity Association, and other professional guilds and organizations.
