Liz Alexander was born in St. Andrews, Scotland in 1954, although her family moved to England a few years later. She will swear to you that she was born with a pencil in her hand and thinks of books variously as her travel agent, time machine, and therapist. One of her earliest memories is of producing a newspaper with the John Bull printing set she was given one Christmas. At age 16, Liz wrote, directed, and starred in her first play, Osiris, based on the Ancient Egyptian myth. Early on in her writing career she wrote short stories featuring a private detective for a newspaper in Scotland. She’d prefer to forget about the teenage poems that were published in an anthology of verse.
Liz has written and co-authored over 20 award-winning non-fiction books—most of them mainstream published—while maintaining a successful freelance journalism career. Asked to describe herself in three words she would answer: thinker, writer, adventurer. The order depends on her mood. Learn more at her website.
