Alex has written young fiction, middle grade and YA plus picture books for an English reading scheme. Her YA novel, ‘Last Chance Angel’ was short-listed for eight awards including the Romantic Novel of the Year Award and ‘No Going Back’ was commended at the Sheffield Book Awards and won the Northamptonshire Children’s Choice Book Award. She has also written young fiction, middle grade, books for reluctant readers and picture book texts for an English reading scheme. Her young fiction was issued on audiotape and ‘Oven Chips For Tea’, her middle grade novel, was broadcast on BBC radio.
Many of Alex’s books have been plucked from the slush pile so she knows all about the challenges of writing without any guarantee of work being accepted. She aims to encourage everyone to follow their writing dream whether that is to be self-published or traditionally published.
