Several of her books have been submitted as unsolicited manuscripts and she is living proof that it is possible to emerge triumphant from the slush pile. Alex has written across the board with her work including young fiction, YA, a novel for pre-teens, a ghost story for reluctant readers and recently two picture books for a South Korean publishing company.
Her work has been issued in large print by the BBC, put on tape and broadcast on the radio. Her YA novel, Last Chance Angel, was short-listed for six awards including the Romantic Novelist of the Year Award and her second YA novel, No Going Back has recently won the Northamptonshire Children’s Choice Book Awards.
When it comes to writing, Alex is a strong believer in the benefits of practise, patience and perseverance. She believes that if you really want to be a writer then you can be a writer. She is married, has three children and lives in Leicester.
