Hello, I'm Alexia Stevens. Thanks for visiting today. Career: I once read a book whose main character was an author. I just thought that was really clever and it planted a tiny seed in my heart that I could be a writer. But that dream didn't materialize until a few years ago. I started out in college to become a network admin, then started planning to become an IT systems analyst before ending up making a big career change to creative writing. My favorite genres to work in are YA romance and non murder mystery. There's enough sadness in news don't you think? My favorite mysteries, of course, are the Hardy Boys, but more recently the Nancy Atherton's Aunt Dimity series. Of that series, Aunt Dimity Beats the Devil is my absolute favorite.
Personal Interests: My latest interests include a new blog, The Hall Pass, for those who homeschool or are interested in homeschooling and a newsletter aptly named Letters from Lexi (sign up on left) that includes notes about homeschooling, writing tips, vocabulary words specific to writers and other personal interests as they come to mind. Additionally, I'll be tossing in some tips to help you develop or continue on your fitness journey. I confess, I've become obsessed with getting my skinny on, haha. Recently, I've started a new blog on Fitness & Nutrition. If you're a writer, I hope this comes in handy to encourage you that it's just as important to get up and move our bodies and to eat right.
Family: I have 4 children, and 4 grand children. When I'm not writing, I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling. I enjoy camping out. I'm originally from south central Texas, but now live in the Missouri Ozark Mountains. Again, thanks for stopping by and taking the time to learn a little more about me. Please leave me any comments or questions. I will get back in touch with you asap.
