Alexia is an author, writing consultant and editor. She also teaches English Literature and Creative Writing. After an MA in Social & Political Sciences (Psychology major) then MPhil in Educational Psychology & Technology, both at Cambridge University, she took a break from academia and moved to New York. There she worked on a Tony-award-winning Broadway show before returning to England to complete a PhD and teaching qualification to become a Fellow of the Higher Education Academy. In between, she worked as a West End script-critic, box-office manager for a music festival and executive editor of a human rights journal.

Her debut novel, The Bone Dragon, was shortlisted for the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Prize and the Jugendliteraturpreis, and long-listed for the Branford Boase Award. It was also a Book of the Year for the Financial Times and Independent. Her second book, House of Windows is a ‘Reading Well for Young People: Shelf-help‘ title.

She loves Dragons, suspects that if she had a previous life it was as a cat, and lives for stories and all the wonderful people they bring into her life.
