After working in the clerical, warehouse and retail industries over the years, without gaining much satisfaction, Alex quit to follow his dream and become a full-time writer.
His non-writing dream is to one day earn enough to travel, with a return to Egypt to visit the parts he missed before, and Macchu Picchu, top of his wishlist of destinations.
When not writing, he is either playing a game or being distracted by Molly the Yorkie, who is greedy for both attention and whatever food is to be found.

That's a tough one. Of the books I've published, I think An Eye For An Eye: Inspector Stone Mysteries #1 is the one I enjoyed writing the most.

Nathan goes through a lot in that book, and it leads up to some big character development in the following books.

Out of all my books, the one I've enjoyed writing the most is The Curious Cousins and the Smugglers of Bligh Island, a YA mystery/adventure book in the vein of Enid Blighton's Famous Five.
I hope that when I finally get the editing finished, sort out a cover, and get it published, people will enjoy reading it as much as I did writing it. My favourite character, Henri the tomboy, is in it and she's a great character (if I do say so myself).(less)

Alex R. Carver, Where There's A Will

“Side by side, as though joined at the hip, Ben and Jerry stepped through the flaps and into the pavilion. They blinked in unison as they went from the darkness of outside to the brightness of the pavilion’s interior, which was lit by portable lights that hung overhead. They knew what to do without talking – they had been working together for so long that they would have been as close as brothers even without the bond of blood – and while Ben made for the young man busily gathering up the plastic glasses that littered the tables, Jerry”
