Alex Mae

Blogger, eater, gabber. Writer of contemporary fantasy novels

Alex Mae lives in Cheltenham, writing copy by day and fiction by night. She studied at the University of Cambridge, where she spent most of her time acting and writing creatively when she should have been working toward her English degree.

After training as an actress at the Drama Centre, Alex embarked on a brief – and rather uneventful! – stint of performing professionally, which made her realise that she would rather write stories than be in them.

BEATS PER MINUTE, her first novel, is now available on Amazon: a coming-of-age, contemporary fantasy about family secrets and the epic battle between two ancient powers.

Outside of the alphabet, Alex enjoys cooking and cooking shows (secret Masterchef fan), any good telly (from True Blood to Friday Night Lights), and destroying her Kindle by loading too many books on it.
