Hello, I'm Alex

I’m a social scientist turned romance author. I’ve spent most of my life in Germany, Italy, Ireland and Colombia and currently live in Northern California with my two favorite guys.

The different cultures and the many unconventional people I’ve met along the way inspired my debut novel Lumiana, the first book in my family saga Rebels Like Us.

“Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.”

Neale Donald Walsch

“Everything you can imagine is real”

 Pablo Picasso
