Alexandra Villasante has always loved telling stories–though not always with words. She has a BFA in Painting and an MA in Combined Media (that’s art school speak for making work out of anything). Born in New Jersey to immigrant parents, Alex has the privilegio of dreaming in both English and Spanish.
When she’s not writing or painting, Alexandra plans conferences and fundraisers for non-profits. She lives with her family in the semi-wilds of Pennsylvania. Her debut young adult novel, The Grief Keeper, was an Indies Next and Indies Introduce selection, and is a Fall 2019 Junior Library Guild Selection. You can find Alexandra on Twitter and Instagram at @magpiewrites.
