Alexa loves reading, writing, and rock music, but mostly reading. Her dream job is getting paid to read all day long, which is why she is an editor (she hopes the paid part will come later). She currently edits for both genesis and the Journal of Teaching Writing. Her favorite book changes on a monthly basis, but her go-to is usually A Wrinkle in Time by Madeleine L’Engle. She adores speculative fiction, which includes science fiction and fantasy, and poetry. Her poem “Concerto No. 2 in G Minor, ‘L’estate’” was published in the Spring 2019 issue of genesis, only a few months before she joined the staff that fall. Alexa’s life ambitions include getting published again, attending Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, knitting an entire sweater (she currently knits smaller things), going back in time in time to see Freddie Mercury live in concert, and getting lots of tattoos, not necessarily in that order.
