About Derek Alexander

I generally write something every day, I'll not pretend that it is always good but sometimes it's not bad. I have just published my first book on Kindle and would appreciate it if you would take a look at it (it's a steal at only 99 cents). Frankly I'd give it away if I could but after talking it over with my creditors we mutually decided that I should charge something.

I guess I should say something about me, although I can't imagine why anyone would care, but my agent says that it's the "right and proper" thing to do, so here it goes.

I spent most of my life determining exactly what I didn't want to do for the rest of my life. Some would say that's a waste of time but I like to think I learned a lot when I moved on if I wasn't happy. For example I was a cowhand at ranches in both Texas and Wyoming. I have also worked on underground nuclear missiles aimed at the Soviet Union. Strange bed fellows I know but it gave me stuff to talk about at job interviews. Anyway, along the way I got a bunch of college degrees that helped me get a job. Traveled the world doing that job and learned a bit more along the way and I found out more stuff I didn't want to do for the rest of my life. I will probably get there in the end, but honestly, I hope not.

Very entertaining book. Moves right along and some details about the workings of a race track. I, too, hope this turns into a series because I really like the heroine. She certainly didn't intend to be a heroine but she had the grit to end up being one.

This is a good read. I didn't figure it out until the end. I love the heroine because she is just an ordinary female trying to just find out what is going on. No super hero. Someone I can identify with. Hope this turns into a series.
