When die-hard sports fans hear of the educational institution Indiana State University, only one name comes to mind. That’s the French Lick, Indiana, phenom, Mr. Larry Bird.
Following her childhood dream of teaching, romantic-suspense author Alexa Grace is now reeling in readers like Bird reeled in fans. The transplanted Floridian who owns a Master’s Degree in education is now writing 6-8 hours per-day as a proud independent author, her “full-time job.”
“I wrote a romantic suspense novel in 1985, went the traditional route, and it was not published,” said the James Patterson fan. “I made a career change that year and I devoted myself 100% to my corporate training management positions. When I lost my job in 2011, I did a lot of Internet research in self-publishing. Indie authors like Theresa Ragan and John Locke have really motivated me to take the Indie route. Like them, I wanted to retain control of book design, writing, marketing, etc. Thus, my Indie journey began.”
When she was mapping out her life as a child, Grace used to say that she’d become an author when she stopped teaching. Today, she’s doing just that. In fact, she’s enjoying her writing profession so much, she doesn’t see anything changing.
“Writing is my passion, the Lady Gaga lover added. “If writing is your passion, you must do it. Life is short and it would be such a waste if you spent it doing anything but what you love.”
Grace has been busy churning out books for her fans. Her works are available on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iTunes, Smashwords, Kobo, Sony, Diesel and more. The following is a list of works:
- Deadly Trilogy: Deadly Offerings (now Free), Deadly Deception, and Deadly Relations (Deadly Holiday is a novella written on the request of her readers. The book includes all of the Deadly Trilogy characters.
- Profile Series: Profile of Evil, Profile of Terror, and Profile of Fear. Profile of Terror and Profile of Fear aren’t available, yet; they’re scheduled to be released later this year
The “invaluable” feedback from readers is propelling Grace
“I take them seriously because good feedback is invaluable to a writer,” Grace talked about the importance of readers’ reviews. “I believe that readers have a right to their opinion and sometimes give me valuable input for making changes. Mostly, I concentrate on the feedback of readers who love my books. I want to keep doing the things they want in my writings.”
