Alex Brightsmith

Biography

Alex Brightsmith was born and raised in Bedfordshire and defies anyone who was not to point it out on a map. Bedfordshire has been claimed (or rejected) by at least five bordering regions, and its lasting legacies have been a resistance to categorisation and a fondness for sprouts.
Alex currently lives in Birmingham, commutes reluctantly, gardens and bakes erratically, and writes emotionally engaging, carefully plotted thrillers, fantasy and flash fiction.
