Claudette Alexander was born in St. Lucia and has been living in Toronto for the past 40 years. Retired, her past experiences involve work in accounting and union activists. She
has been battling chronic kidney failure for 10 years and currently volunteers leading
workshops on living healthy with chronic health conditions.
Her memoir “SUNRISE FROM AN ICY HEART’ is about her transformational journey into womanhood, her search for a special kind of love, the tears and joys of motherhood, and her fight to remain among the land of the living.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I spent a year sending out query letters to agents and publishers without success. I read extensively on the publishing industry and it seemed like the trend is changing to make self-publishing an easier goal to achieve. I do believe I have a magnificent story to let die without being told.
How has Smashwords contributed to your success?
Smashwords have given me the ability to reach out to many different formats of ebooks and in so doing my memoir is exposed to a wider variety of readers
Sunrise from An Icy Heart has a grand romance, passion and understanding that took 43 years to develop. Includes a single mother’s struggles to raise eye candy sons with strong loving hearts and her battle to remain in the land of the living. In addition, it envelopes all that is special about St. Lucia, its people, and culture.
