Alexandra Amor

Alexandra Amor is a lifelong explorer of what it means to be human.

For 20+ years Alexandra has been writing both fiction and non-fiction books, all with the themes of love, connection, and the search for understanding. She began her writing career with an Amazon best-selling, award-winning memoir about ten years she spent in a cult in the 1990s.

A former Vancouverite, Alexandra now lives in a magical fishing village on Vancouver Island and spends each day writing and creating. When she’s not doing that you’ll likely find her walking on a beach or worrying that the vacuum cleaner feels ignored. In her spare time she serves on the boards of her local hospice association and the local independent seniors’ subsidized living facility.

Alexandra loves hearing from readers and fellow writers. You can contact her here.
