Michele Scott

Pseudonym: A.K. Alexander.

Michele grew up thirty minutes east of San Diego in an area called Jamul. It was out there in the country that her parents bought Michele's first horse and she learned how to ride at five. At nine years old she knew she loved to write and one day wrote a short story that she showed to her dad. She'd written it on one of his legal pads. After he read it, he looked at her and said, 'You are a writer.' With those words spoken, she's never stopped writing stories.

She graduated from The University of Southern California with a degree in communications, where she studied journalism and hoped to be a reporter. But deep down inside, she'd never given up on being a fiction author. Fate intervened and during Michele's senior year at college she became pregnant with her first son who was born six weeks prematurely. She had to stay home with her newborn who needed constant care and it was at that time she decided to write her first book.

She contacted Writer's Digest and ordered their correspondence course on writing a novel. For ten years Michele kept writing, submitting, attending conferences and workshops and receiving rejections but never giving up.

Finally in March 2004, Jessica Faust at Bookends signed her as a client. One month later Michele received THE CALL from Jessica telling her that she had a publisher'Berkley Prime Crime, and that they wanted to sign her for three books in The Wine Lover's Mystery Series. 'It was surreal, wonderful and a dream come true when my agent called and told me. That night my husband and I got a really nice bottle of Champagne and celebrated.' Then in December that second call came in about The Equine Mystery Series.

Michele writes full time now and lives in San Diego with her very supportive husband, two sons and daughter.
