About this author

Alexandra Adornetto is the pen name of Alexandra Grace, born on April 18 1993 in Melbourne, Australia. She penned her first series, The Strangest Adventures at thirteen, after being inspired by Lewis Carroll, J.M Barrie and Enid Blyton.

She is now a New York Times bestselling author with seven books behind her. After the release of the Halo series, she left Australia to relocate to Oxford, Mississippi, where she met the love of her life...a five pound Yorkie named Boo Radley.

Alexandra now lives in Hollywood with all the other misfits.

“A man in love can do extraordinary things, I don’t care if you’re an angel, you’re my angel, and I won’t let you go.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
tags: love

“One of the most frustrating words in the human language, as far as I could tell, was love.
So much meaning attached to this one little word. People bandied it about freely, using it to
describe their attachments to possessions, pets, vacation destinations, and favorite foods. In the
same breath they then applied this word to the person they considered most important in their
lives. Wasn’t that insulting? Shouldn’t there be some other term to describe deeper emotion?”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo

“I thought you were gone forever, I thought you’d walked away from everything, because I failed, because I destroyed the only thing that ever mattered to me. I waited for you to come, but you didn’t.”
Alexandra Adornetto, Halo
