Alex Brown

Alex grew up in Brighton and left school at sixteen to run away to London with dreams of being a writer. On realising that she needed a proper job too, she went to work in an office. Throughout her fifteen year corporate career, she survived many dull meetings by writing a cheeky scene or two, until she could bear it no longer, collapsed in a heap and then lounged on a chaise waiting for the muse to arrive. Soon after escaping office life, she won a competition to write the weekly City Girl column for The London Paper. Her first novel, Cupcakes at Carrington’s, was published by Harper (HarperCollins) in January 2013. She lives near Brighton, on the South Coast of England, with her husband, utterly adorable daughter (fondly known as QT) and one very shiny black Labrador.
