Houses in Africa

When I was 10, I was taken from my quiet, safe corner of old Europe and deposited into an exotic new world.

About Alma Alexander

I was born on the banks of an ancient river in a country which no longer exists.

I began telling stories as a child and never stopped. To date, I have written close to three million words in more than 20 published books. My novel, The Secrets of Jin-shei, has been published in 14 languages. My popular Young Adult Worldweavers series features New World magic and a heroine who is as American as Harry Potter is British.

I like books, embroidery, music ranging from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" to Dvorak's New World Symphony, animals, coffee, chocolate, snow, velvet -- and, in people, kindness, intelligence and an off-the-wall sense of humor.

I am a punaholic, a chronic worrier, sentimental and passionate. I am married to a man who wooed me over the Internet and lured me to America, where I am currently owned by a cat.
