Alexandra Wright has been writing since she could put pen to paper. Growing up in Sydney, Australia, she took pleasure in playing the piano, singing, the arts, languages, cooking and, of course, she spent a great deal of time reading and writing. Having so many interests meant her career aspirations had a habit of changing, but her profession eventually chose her. An incurable obsession with literature, her earliest and most enduring passion, led her to pursue a career as a novelist. While she dabbled in writing short stories and novellas as a child and teen, she began writing full-length novels as an adult. Being a child at heart, and an educator of young children, it was a natural progression for her to move in to writing fiction for children and young adults.
