When she is not writing science fiction and fantasy with a chance of explosions, Alex Harrow is a high school English teacher, waging epic battles against comma splices and the misuse of apostrophes.
A German ex-pat, Alex has always been drawn to language and stories. She began to write when she realized that the best guarantee to see more books with diverse characters on the shelves of bookstores was to write them. She cares deeply about social justice and wants to see diverse characters, including LGBTQ protagonists in more than the stereotypical coming out story.
She currently lives in Salt Lake City, UT with her equally geeky wife, outnumbered by three adorable feline overlords, and what could not possibly be too many books.
