Tess Riddle

Co-Founder & President

Tess Riddle


When T&R Independent Books was established by Ronald and Teresa Riddle, Co-Owners, she was installed as President on the basis of her Masters Degree in Business. She earned her MBA at Louisiana Baptist University. Also she spent many years as a trusted and valued secretary for a major corporate business. She brings to the business a balance of knowledge gained through study and experience. Going forward this will serve them a long time.

But she also had a secret desire to write her own books. Now we anticipate the publishing of her mystery featuring Rita Honeycutt, a teenage girl with a nose for intrigue. We are looking forward to this new series.

Tess recently had to battle cancer but she came through it victoriously. She continues to work on her novel and we eagerly look forward to seeing it published soon.
