Alexa Jacobs was born and raised in the suburban outskirts of Baltimore, Maryland. She met her husband through friends in high school, and began what turned out to be a short lived career in the financial industry. With her first child, she became a stay at home parent and threw all of her energy into becoming the queen of Pinterest before Pinterest was a thing.

When her second child headed off to kindergarten, Alexa thought that it was time for a career change.

After a decade with at least one child underfoot 24 hours a day, it was time for her to discover who she was going to be when she grew up.

Turns out, she was a mom who sat by the window and cried the entire day on that first day of “freedom” from early parenthood.

There are so many possibilities. Though I write contemporary romance, I read across all genres of romance. I feel as though I am trying to choose among my children.

I'm a bit of a sci-fi junkie, so immediately my mind goes to Zoe and Wash from Firefly, or Madam Vastra and Jenny Flint from Doctor Who! But then that opens my mind to TV all together and before I know it Cory and Topanga show up, as do Ross and Rachel, or Joey and Pacey, Carl and Elle (talk about #relationshipgoals), Angel and.....Cordelia (YES, I think Buffy is better suited to Spike). I was and forever will be a Team Jess Gilmore Girl. And let us all have marriages like Cliff and Claire Huxtable.

Book-wise, my mind can go a million different directions. Believe it or not my favorite couple in Rising Ridge isn't Olivia and Dean! It's actually Connor and Elle (though I'd have to take Didier and Lorraine out of the running because that's not fair to anyone).

I will go with Edmund and Fanny from Mansfield Park! Shocker, right? These two spent their entire lives together and were the best of friends. There is something so compelling to me when you have the opportunity to fall in love with every little thing about a person and be unconditionally in love with them before you realize that you are.

I have to say, in the Johnny Lee Miller version of it all...the kiss that almost was, and when he professes his love to Fanny....*****SWOON**** (less)

Quiet Storm

It’s been a hot minute since you’ve heard from me.


One year.


I didn’t plan it, but as it so happens that is the first line in my current work in progress.


Many of you have kept up with me on social media and know I’ve had my hands full this past year. My small children with their small problems are somehow big children with big problems. I swear it was only a second ago I was shopping preschools, and
