Dixie Distler









Dixie was born in Germany and later moved to the States with her family.  She earned her certification as a Radiological Technologist in Lexington, Kentucky, and currently resides in Huntsville, Alabama with her husband and children. A mother of three and grandmother of three, she has proudly served her local church as a teacher for over thirty years. It was through her love for children and storytelling that she found her passion for fiction writing.

Dixie’s favorite pastime is to escape to the cabin she built with her husband on top of a North Alabama mountain in the middle of nowhere, to read books and to write her stories. In the stillness of her rustic hideaway, her characters come to life.

Dixie is a member of the Historical Novel Society ( As a self professed student of the classics, she has developed a heartwarming back story to Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol, which retells the story from the perspective of Scrooge’s clerk, Bob Cratchit. Her story, The Life and Times of Bob Cratchit, enlightens us with the charm and warmth of the man who cherished his family and friends.

Her most recent project, Tabor – The First Christian, is an action adventure story of a Jewish shepherd who lived in the time of Jesus. His struggles and triumphs under Roman rule bring us on a journey few can imagine, yet in the end, discover real strength is found in redemption and forgiveness.
