“Of all the things I write for a living, fiction will always be my first love.
I like to tell a good story. It may begin as a few ideas loosely based on reality, and then take a turn into the boundless world of the writer’s imagination…after which it emerges as something far more entertaining. Sometimes the ideas come like scenes in a movie, with the novel literally writing itself. Others are a long, painstaiking process like weaving a tapestry thread by thread.”

Alexandra’s chilling short story “Howie”
appears in the Coffeehouse Writers Group anthology.

Darkness Brewing, now on amazon.com.

In the works are a period novel based on the adventures of her Northern Italian grandparents who immigrated to America in the early 1900s and became pasta entrepreneurs, and a metaphysically flavored novel about three characters’ self-examination of what they truly believe as they undergo life’s darkest trials.
