Alex writes short stories and flash fiction in an attempt to avoid reality. Her body lives in Wales, her mind is always elsewhere. She has a MLitt in Creative Writing and has been published in magazines, journals and anthologies.  

The universe has long decided that she is a close-but-no-cigar type of person, which means she has perfected the art of getting placed and shortlisted in numerous writing competitions without actually ever winning. It’s quite a skill.  


When she’s not writing, her brain spends most of its time recording other people’s conversations so she can use them in her work. If you know her and ask her about this, she will lie and assure you that none of her characters are based on you.
