Alexandra Neumeister is a native of Southern California. She has a love of nature and travel developed while living in a small town overlooking the ocean. Alexandra wanted to be a zoologist when she grew up, but maintained a fascination with books and storytelling, particularly the genre of speculative fiction. She discovered writing was a more fulfilling career path, and made that the focus of her life. After earning her AA degree in Math and Science from distance learning courses at Coastline Community College, she transferred to the University of California, Riverside, where she graduated with a BA degree in Creative Writing in 2013. She intends to use her writing to promote literacy and reading as something other than an assignment, and encourage learning outside of the classroom.
