Alexandra says, “From the outside, my life looks pretty quiet. I write. I read. I go for long walks. I do all that over again the next day.
“But on the inside, my life is very exciting. I live much of my time in the world of my imagination, with my characters. I think about plot, story and character development a lot.
“I’m also fascinated with learning, particularly learning about art, creativity and how others bring their art to the world.
“So I’m kind of like a Mars bar; plain on the outside, lots of interesting flavours and textures on the inside. I think most writers will tell you the same thing.“I live in beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, which is not too far from where the fictional town of Horse would be located (if it were real). And I love hearing from readers. You can contact me here.”
