I'm glad to hear you liked the book. I'm currently finishing a second draft of a middle grade novel that I hope to have published in the next year or so. It's very different from 'From Ant to Eagle' in that it is fantasy. I don't want to give to much away yet as I'm still working out the details but I hope readers will like it. Thanks again! - Alex(less)

Look forward to hearing from you!

Which makes it ironic that I have just published my first book, From Ant To Eagle.


Why was my mother worried? Not to mention every teacher I ever had…


Because I was (and still am) an atrocious speller.


Here’s a sample of my journal when I was 8 years old.



What is written: “Tues Dec 3rd. my neu...
