A child of Old Europe grows up on the Dark Continent

When she was 10, Alma Alexander was taken from her quiet, safe corner of old Europe and deposited into an exotic new world.

She writes about about her 20 years in Africa with the awe and wonder of the child that she was, and the eye for nuance and detail that makes her the great novelist and essayist that she became.

Alma Alexander was born on the banks of the Danube in a country which no longer exists, grew up in Africa, and went to school in a castle in Wales
She has written close to three million words in 12 published books. Her novel, The Secrets of Jin-shei, has been published in  14 languages. Her popular young adult series, Worldweavers, features New World magic and a heroine who is as American as Harry Potter is British. 

She likes books, embroidery, music ranging from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" to Dvorak's New World Symphony, animals, coffee, chocolate, snow, velvet -- and, in people, kindness, intelligence and an off-the-wall sense of humor. 

She is a punaholic, a chronic worrier, sentimental and passionate. She is married to a man who wooed her over the Internet and lured her to America, where she is currently owned by two cats.
