Her books have been published in more than 14 languages worldwide, including Turkish, Hewbrew and Catalan.

Alexander’s papers are archived in the Department of Special Collections and Rare Books at the University of Northern Illinois

Born in the country that used to be known as Yugoslavia, Alexander grew up in various countries in Africa, educated in the UK, and holding postgraduate qualifications from the University of Cape Town (her MSc played a large part in the science of The Were Chronicles). She lived and worked in New Zealand for almost a decade before moving to the United States. She currently lives in the Pacific Northwest with the obligatory and much loved two writers’ cats and assorted visiting

Some details:
The Worldweavers series: 4 books (originally published between 2008 and 2015; to be re-released in new editions in 2022). – “The Gift of the Unmage”, “Spellspam”, “Cybermage”, and “Dawn of Magic” – the journey of young Thea Winthrop from underachieving “failure” to one of the very few Elemental mages of the human race, with the help of the man known as the Wizard of the West, Nikola Tesla. As American as Harry Potter was English, these books have been described as being full of “wild and original magic”, won starred reviews, and have been well-loved by readers.

The Were Chronicles: “Random”, Wolf” and Shifter” currently available in an omnibus edition containing all three novels – as the back blurb tells you, “Everything you know about the Were is wrong” – you have never read a shifter story like this one before. Creating an entirely original, science-based, fully-realised Were world, these books have been described as raw,honest, and life-changing by readers.

“Changer of Days” – Alexander’s high fantasy tale,originally split in half and published as a duology, is to be re-released in a single 20th anniversary edition volume at the end of 2021.

The Alternate History Arc – Alexander’s historical fantasy books (“Secrets of Jin Shei”, “Embers of Heaven”, “Empress”) all take place in the same “alternate history” world and links exist backwards and forwards forging a strong historical backbone to this world – if you love the work of Guy Gavriel Kay,give these books a try.
