About Me

Card thoughtfully pens together an intimate look at the legion of personalities that persisted together to form a dynasty, delivering a much-needed tribute to these pivotal trailblazers – The Boston Globe


As the granddaughter of the legendary Vanderbilt track coach Ernest “Herc” Alley, the author has a personal connection to this story, with access to the subjects she features. Alley Card does a masterful job capturing the lasting impact of this sisterhood of Tigerbelles, who broke gender barriers during a time of Jim Crow racism and discrimination. – American Library Association’s Booklist Starred Review

Kimberly Williams-Paisley, actor and New York Times Bestselling author of Where the Light Gets In 

“This inspiring book chronicles the compelling journey of an underdog track team from Nashville, TN, as they raced over potholes on dusty dirt roads toward an eventual Olympic Gold victory. Aime Card shines a bright light on these extraordinary women, and I’m excited this story is being told.”

A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this book will be donated to the Edward Temple Scholarship at New Hope Academy in Franklin, TN

And Beneath It All Was Love: My Path Back Home Again Through Breast Cancer


From Amazon:  "Honest, raw, and ultimately uplifting, Aime’s story pulls no punches when describing the mental and physical toll of breast cancer treatment. She is not the same person who heard the dreaded words “You have cancer.” That person is gone forever. In her place is a stronger, more resilient woman who learned to treasure life as a daily gift and embrace love over fear."
