Author Academy Elite - Author Of The Year 2019 -
I am the author of IN ALEXA'S SHOES, which is my debut novel. I was truly blessed to have an amazing woman as my grandmother. Alexa was a Polish Christian, and we shared a very special relationship, even though I was born in Scotland and only got to see her during summer vacations when my mother would take me to visit her.
Over the years we shared many hours of conversations and a deep bond of love. Alexa shared her harrowing life story with me, of when she was a teenager during WWII and was captured by the Nazis. I promised her that I would write her story into a novel one day, and now I have.
It's a gripping read of the hardships she was forced to endure, but also a story of faith, hope, courage, love and the resilience of the human spirit. Ultimately, Alexa's story is one of triumph over tragedy, with several unexpected twists along the way, which you won't see coming. Alexa always chose love over hate, which is a valuable lesson we can all learn from. Especially today!
