Meet the Author

As a screenwriter, Alexandra Sokoloff has sold original horror and thriller scripts and written novel adaptations for numerous Hollywood studios. Her debut ghost story, THE HARROWING, was nominated for a Bram Stoker award (horror) and an Anthony award (mystery) for Best First Novel. Her second supernatural thriller, THE PRICE, was called “Some of the most original and freshly unnerving work in the genre” by the New York Times Book Review. THE UNSEEN is based on real-life experiments conducted at the Rhine parapsychology lab on the Duke University campus; and BOOK OF SHADOWS teams a cynical Boston cop and a beautiful, mysterious witch from Salem in a race to solve a Satanic killing. Alex is also the author of two writing workbooks based on her internationally acclaimed workshop and blog: SCREENWRITING TRICKS FOR AUTHORS. She writes erotic paranormal on the side, including THE SHIFTERS, Book 2 of THE KEEPERS trilogy.

“The Edge of Seventeen” was originally published in THE DARKER MASK, and won the International Thriller Writers' Thriller award for Best Short Fiction. Alex recently adapted the story as a full-length supernatural YA: THE SPACE BETWEEN, available now.
