"The first thing I do in the morning is brush my teeth and sharpen my tongue." –Dorothy Parker

Hello, Hello!

I’m Alejandra. I’m a novelist, a blogger, a chatterbox, and a bookworm. Sometimes I get asked interesting questions about my line of work (some people say I’m inspirational). Sometimes I get to wax poetic about famous writers. Many moons ago, I was even on TV for a hot second.

Let’s be friends! Let’s share heavily filtered pictures of our lives! Let’s do all of the things! (And join me at my favorite procrastination station)
