Alexandra Bogdanovic was born in Bronxville, N.Y. and grew up in Greenwich, Conn. She knew she wanted to be a reporter at age 12, and received her first byline in the Greenwich Time when she was a high school freshman.

descriptionThe state of American politics never ceases to amaze me. In fact, I'm so disgusted at this point that I don't watch the news or read the newspaper or listen to the radio (much).
For the record, I'm not sticking my head in the sand. I'm just looking out for my health. The current election cycle is not good for my blood pressure.
Having said all of that, it is laughable. And with that in mind, I've decided to share some of my f... Read more of this blog post »

All great writer's, since they have created life on paper, for those that weary, for those that need too be entertained and those that have, had the same sort of experiences and want to relate to something, someone and come out much stronger after they have read the novels from these dedicated authors.
