Alex is a Nomad at heart
From the age of 16, he has bounced all around the world in various capacities: volunteering in the wilds of Norway, teaching circus arts in Madrid, and getting his Masters in Creative Writing from Glasgow University. These experiences and more have crafted his storytelling style—a mix of the fantastic and mundane, exotic and familiar.
He is the author of more than a dozen books for children and adults, including the international bestseller THE IMMORTAL CIRCUS, which was optioned for TV, along with the breakout middle grade chiller THE COLLECTOR. He is represented by Brent Taylor of Triada Literary US. Alex’s goal is to continually expand queer rep in children’s fiction, which has begun in earnest with his award-winning RUNEBINDER CHRONICLES.
Currently, he resides in Seattle. But that is bound to change soon.
He would love to hear from you!
