When it comes to writing, Lex is driven to put words on paper. Well, digital paper. At the beginning of this decade her love of romance books took her to author sites which led to more writing and the creation of a blog called Sunlight Sucks. That’s where author Jennifer Leeland first saw her work and encouraged (cough *bullied* cough) her to submit her writing to publishers. Now an award winning, multi-published, PAN author, Lex is a member of Romance Writers of America and active in her local Orange County chapter. Despite how distinguished that sounds, Lex is still driven by the written word, driven to write them and read them. At one time she had so many books her husband banned her from bringing home anything but digital editions. Born and raised in Salinas, California, home of the California Rodeo, Lex moved to Southern California in 1992. Creative and a little left of center, with her writing and graphic arts as the main focus of her life these days, Lex is a minority in conservative Orange County where she lives with Rott, her long haired, tattooed husband and a bunch of cats she calls Babies. She has one daughter, a millennial who is an artist and gamer. Lex loves loud rock music from any era, builds her own computers, wears body jewelry in her ears and has a double helix threaded with purple titanium. Purple is her favorite color of course. A former IT Geek, Lex works full-time as a bean counter at a 105 year old cemetery.
