Overview

For Mira Winfield, the American Dream is beginning to seem like an exclusive night club where the bouncer keeps turning her away. Unlike most of her friends who have already begun their families, Mira has no college degree, no meaningful career and has yet to even cross paths with the father of her future children. With her thirtieth birthday fast approaching, Mira is frustrated with the stagnation of life and even more frustrated by people who keep assuring her, "Just wait...you'll get there."

After witnessing the birth of her best friend's baby, Mira can wait no longer. She launches herself down a bittersweet path of self-analysis that includes therapy, radical break-room discussions, "dating blitzes," yogic wisdom, Zen meditation and even erotic Bible verses! Cheered on by a caring sister, a saucy best friend and an office full of sundry and entertaining coworkers, Mira discovers how much can change when she lets go of timetables.

Meet the Author

Alexandra Lander grew up the youngest of nine children in a highly creative, close-knit family from the Midwest. Her passion for writing has existed ever since she bought her first journal in the third grade, and her very first readers were sixth grade classmates who clandestinely passed around her short stories during class.

Alexandra's dedication to the craft was fostered by many encouraging and memorable teachers from elementary school through college. In the last two decades, she has been many things...a Federal employee, a primary-grade school teacher, a writer/editor for elementary-level textbooks and assessments, a singer/songwriter, a licensed massage therapist and author of her first novel, "saffire_21." Alexandra writes with the intention that her works be inspirational as well as entertaining.

When she's not writing, Alexandra enjoys live music, traveling, socializing with friends, and hiking or biking somewhere beautiful. She currently resides in Portland, Oregon.
