As a screenwriter Alex has sold original suspense and thriller scripts and adapted novels for numerous Hollywood studios. She has served on the Board of Directors of the WGA, west (the screenwriters' union) and the Board of the Mystery Writers of America. She is a California native and a graduate of U.C. Berkeley, where she majored in theater and minored in everything Berkeley has a reputation for. She now splits her time between Los Angeles and Scotland, where she lives with the Scottish noir author Craig Robertson. In her spare time (!) she performs with Heather Graham's all-author Slush Pile Players, and dances like a fiend. She is also very active on Facebook. But not an addict. No, seriously, it's under control.
