Alex studied the SF classics while sharpening pencils and working as an editorial assistant in what is considered the drizzle capital of the world, London. This was way back in the day when dinosaurs still roamed the earth. She then moved to New York to escape the rain where she worked for people who expected her to spel corectly and typ efficently in engrish. She spent 32 years working in the print and publishing trade before retiring in 2016 for health reasons.

Alex now lives in Québec City, Canada, with her long time partner, a library-sized collection of books, and an unhealthy amount of toys. She writes everything from space opera to murder-mysteries, and loves reading stories that feature strong female characters.

And yes, it’s true, Alex loves marmite!
