I am Alexandra Killworth, a young author currently based in Gloucestershire. My main genre is Young Adult, although my books vary from dystopia horror to contemporary romance. I like to be new and exciting in my work, and I don’t like sticking to just one genre when I want to try everything.
Alongside writing, I am a mother to 2 African Pygmy Hedgehogs, a bengal cat and a ferret! I run a small business where I sell customised birthday boxes for ferrets, which you can find on Facebook.
I am also an artist! I like drawing people and characters, as well as my own flower-filled silhouette style pieces of art. This is more of a hobby than a career, and is simply something I enjoy doing in my spare time.
In both my writing and my art, I do like to address sensitive subjects that are really important to me; specifically, mental health. As I suffer from some mental health illnesses myself, I believe it’s important to express my feelings and thoughts on the subject in various forms, and you’ll often find darker themes of suicide, self harm, depression, and so on.
