amplifying diverse voices since 1995
Hi, I'm Alex
As a bit of a free spirit myself, I write romance novels that challenge the status quo. I love every aspect of my craft and have made it my mission to help aspiring authors from marginalized groups and diverse backgrounds write the book they’ve always wanted to write.
After spending most of my life in Germany, Italy, Ireland and Colombia, I currently live in Northern California with my two favorite guys.
My love of music, cultures, personal development, and the many unconventional people I’ve met along the way, inspired my family saga Rebels Like Us.

“Looking for Love in all the Wrong Places” could’ve been the soundtrack of Johnny Graham’s life.
At 29, newly single and low on inspiration, he’s desperate to produce another hit album, when his bandmate introduces him to Lumiana Harding’s hauntingly beautiful voice.
Convinced she’ll help make his new album a success, persuading the young anthropology professor proves more difficult—and adventurous—than Johnny could’ve ever imagined.
The Rebels Like Us family saga chronicles the lives and loves of the now adult children of Casa de Esperanza, a former Los Angeles based orphanage run by German-Colombian immigrant couple Emma Arendt and Fernando García.
An immigrant and modern-day nomad myself, the series is loosely based on my life and inspired by the many unconventional people I’ve met along the way.
Note: Each installment of the miniseries builds upon the next, and is the length of a novella. If you’ve already read Lumiana (Book 1), skip ahead to Volume 4, which picks up right where Book 1 left off. The next 3 installments are scheduled to be published in June.

The first thing Jaya ever learned from life: work hard and never get attached to someone else. So what’s a woman to do when she ends up living next to a male supermodel who’s looking for a connection that goes beyond skin-deep?
At twenty-five, whip-smart novelist Jaya Lahiri is close to realizing her dream of becoming a respected sociologist. When her longtime friend, TV host Trevor Williams, invites her to appear on his show, Jaya jumps at the chance to promote her latest book #PicturePerfect, a critique of the fashion industry.
But things don’t go exactly as planned: fear of flying is a bitch and Jaya’s had one too many Xanax. And why hadn’t Trevor warned her that those sneaky producers invited supermodel Noah Santino on the show to spur a heated debate? When Jaya trips on stage and lands face first in Noah’s lap, her life takes an unexpected turn.
