Xenia Alexiou is Greek and lives in Europe. An avid reader and knowledge junkie, she likes to travel all over the globe and take pictures of the wonderful and interesting people that represent different cultures. Trying to see the world through their eyes has been her most challenging yet rewarding pursuit so far. These travels have inspired countless stories, and it's these stories that she is grateful for the opportunity to write about. The Elite Operatives Series is her first published work. Her first book, Lethal Affairs, won the Lesbian Fiction Readers Choice Award in the adventure category.
