All about the author and so much more
ALEXANDRA WOLFE is not a New York Times bestselling author and isn’t likely to be. But she definitely knows what types of stories she likes to read and, as a consequence, writes in a lot of different genres.
To date, she has written everything from space opera to murder-mysteries, police procedurals to science fantasy, futuristic fantasies to tales of the supernatural, including a few with a paranormal twist.
One thing you can be certain of, all of Alexandra’s work feature strong female characters engaged in a variety of adventures involving mystery, danger and yes, occasionally, some romance.
Alexandra lives in Québec, Canada, with her long time partner, a library-sized collection of books and an unhealthy amount of toys.
Alexandra was born at an extraordinary young age in Hannover, Germany, to English speaking parents, which confused the hell out of her. It was the year Sputnik made headlines and people were exploding atomic bombs in the desert. Not that the desert had done anything to deserve this treatment. Despite the young age of three, she sailed with her treasured Bushbaby from England to Hong Kong, a journey that took almost three months. She was accompanied by a number of big people who claimed to be her family, though to this day she still isn’t sure who they are. She does, however, like it when they send her birthday cards and Christmas gifts.
During her formative years Alexandra was hauled round the planet at an alarming rate, moving approximately every two to three years. Consequently she knows a lot about geography, languages, people, foreign cuisine and really big bugs, which she used to collect and stick pins in. She no longer has the bug collection but she does have fond memories of all the exotic and not so exotic places she visited and the people she met.
And yes, it’s true, she loves Marmite.
My darling girl, when are you going to realize that being normal is not necessarily a virtue? It rather denotes a lack of courage!Aunt Frances, Practical Magic
