Visiting your blog is one of my web highlights. You and Neil Gaiman.

Cats, magic, music, living in the Northwest, living other places, living with the children of your heart -- I think I'd like to read just about anything you want to blog about --
Steven Saus
Shoes and Ships and Sealing Wax is a wonderful hodgepodge ... Her essays are well written and often quite moving. Definitely worth the low price of admission.

Meet the Author

Alma Alexander was born on the banks of an ancient river in a country which no longer exists.

She began telling stories as a child and never stopped. To date, Alma has written close to three million words in 11 published books. Her novel,The Secrets of Jin-shei, has been published in 14 languages all around the world.

Her popular Young Adult Worldweavers series features New World magic and a heroine who is as American as Harry Potter is British.

The woman underneath the author likes books, embroidery, music ranging from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show" to Dvorak's New World Symphony, animals, coffee, chocolate, snow, velvet -- and, in people, kindness, intelligence and an off-the-wall sense of humor.

She is a punaholic, a chronic worrier, sentimental and passionate. She is married to a man who wooed her over the Internet and lured her to America, where she is currently owned by two cats.
