Alexander Blakeley is a writer of fantasy and crime fiction in short story, novella and full length novel formats. He has a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Ancient, Medieval and Early Modern history and loves to immerse himself in the worlds of the past. He complemented this formal study in 2015 by completing a Master of Philosophy in Creative Writing from the University of Queensland.
Bitten by the travel-bug as a young boy, Alexander has been lucky enough to journey to Europe, the Middle East, North Africa and North America. He draws on his encounters with the people, history and cultures of the lands through which he’s travelled to enrich the worlds he creates.
As a Senior Secondary Teacher, Alexander has spent over a decade teaching History and English to students and fostering a love of the stories of the past and the wonderful world of books.
