Most of what she writes is dark fantasy, but she enjoys her attempts at the humorous side of things. It's not odd to find romance within her fantasy as well. She's also tried her hand at poetry, horror, and mainstream. The genre doesn't matter to her, simply the need to tell the story unfolding in her head.
She has a M.F.A. in Writing Popular Fiction from Seton Hill University (June 2012), and she is a member of Broad Universe.
Alexa's life isn't filled with writing alone; she has a supportive husband, who thinks he puts up with too much at times, a daughter, and two cats. Her thirteen-year-old goldfish, to the day of winning him at a fair, passed away on July 4, 2006. Until his death, he was the only thing in her life that was older than her love of writing.
