headshot3Alex Richards is a young adult novelist–ACCIDENTAL (Bloomsbury 2020), WHEN WE WERE STRANGERS (Bloomsbury 2021) and Back Talk (Flux 2007).

In addition to writing, you could also call me a dabbler. I’ve dabbled in photography, film, theater, television, and my husband and I have been known to make no-budget horror flicks in our spare time. I love movies, cooking, decoupage, yoga, good bands, ice cream cake, and almost anything cheesy (from pizza to Pretty in Pink).

I grew up in Santa Fe, NM but relocated to New York for college and subsequently, life. I live in Brooklyn with my husband, 3 cats, and our 2 fantastically remarkable kids. We love exploring the nooks and crannies of this beautifully diverse city, dancing in the dark, and huggling.
