About Alexander S. Bauer

I was abysmal at the kind of writing that gets you good grades in English classes, so I never wrote much until tenth grade, after my ninth grade teacher embraced my creativity. Since then I haven't been able to stop.

The best way to describe myself would be complex. I lettered in two sports (Bowling and Baseball) in high school and captained two academic clubs (Science Olympiad and Math League. I'm a jock who likes to write, who watches Star Trek, who cares about LGBT issues and human sexuality. I'm a nerd that plays with legos and builds model railroads, but can also play sports. One day I'll read about psychology, then movies, then hockey, then history.

I've written four full novels, a couple dozen short stories and somewhere around five hundred poems. As a writer I derive inspiration from Rowling, Orwell, Crichton, and a number of Star Trek novelists as well as every movie I've ever seen. I like fantasy, things that can't happen in real life, the creation of entire worlds in which both author and reader can immerse themselves. I like ambiguous characters, neither good nor bad. I like insidious heroes, bastards with hearts of gold, people that make you laugh and think at the same time.

And I love to converse, so if you're like me, track me down somewhere and say hi.

Review by: Jen Valencia on March 04, 2013 :
I thoroughly enjoyed "Haven" by Alexander Bauer. The relationship between Persephone and Yvette was one that was quite touching. The awkwardness and wonder they experienced as their love and friendship grew made them more real as individuals and not just as mere literary figures. I liked that, while they tried to be careful not to bring their church's ire upon them unnecessarily, they were never ashamed of their love for one another. Kudos to the author for a well-written and thought-provoking tale.
