Hi, how are you?

I write stories, some of them for Ellery Queen’s Mystery Magazine and Pulphouse Fiction Magazine.

I’ve also written five self-help books applying business techniques to personal matters like getting dressed, cleaning house, and feeding your friends.

Five fun facts about me

Alexandria Blaelock June 2023 full length white background
  1. When I was about eight, I spent a lovely sunny afternoon in an apricot tree eating sun-warmed fruit straight from the branch. And was very ill the next day. Haven’t eaten them since. Can’t even stand the smell of them.
  2. I took a cruise on the original Love Boat (Sun Princess), but decades after the show finished when she was Festival Cruises Flamenco.
  3. I sang First Tenor in my high school’s Choir and Barber Shop Quartet.
  4. I am a dog magnet. Wherever I goes, dogs (and sometimes cats) come to check me out. I’ve been approached by stray dogs in London, San Francisco, Geneva, Pompeii, Rotorua and across Australia (amongst others).
  5. My hair started going white in my early teens; I had Lily Munster streaks and I thought I looked cool.
