Tickle, who was with Publishers Weekly until her retirement in 2004, began her career as a college teacher and, for almost 10 years, served as academic dean to the Memphis College of Art before entering full time into writing and publishing. In September 1996, she received the Mays Award, one of the book industry's most prestigious awards for lifetime achievement in writing and publishing and specifically in recognition of her work in gaining mainstream media coverage of religion publishing.
In 2004, she received the honorary Doctor of Humane Letters degree from the Berkeley School of Divinity at Yale University, also in recognition of her work. In 2007, she received a Lifetime Achievement Award from The Christy Awards "in gratitude for a lifetime as an advocate for fiction written to the glory of God."
