About The Author
Alexander had an active imagination his whole life, but it wasn’t until the birth of his son that he began putting the stories in his mind on paper.
He wanted to be an example of someone pursuing his passion, dreaming big, and taking chances.
Alexander loves people, their stories, and their backgrounds as well as what shapes them, how they think, and what they dream about.
He has a passion for learning and is known by most as an intensely curious person who eagerly soaks up anything and everything he can.
He dreamt of a career that allowed him to learn new things every day. In writing, he has found a life that allows him to do just that.
After graduating with a degree in business, Alexander volunteered in the U.S. Peace Corps where he aided in creating sustainable small business ventures in Central America.
Before taking this leap of faith, Alexander did Business Development and Consulting for large domestic and international companies. These experiences weave themselves into the characters, places and stories he creates.
An avid traveler, Alexander enjoys exploring new places with his family. He was raised in Southeastern Arizona, and now calls Georgia home, along with his wife and two sons.
The Recruiter is Alexander’s first novel, though perhaps the 39th in his mind. We hope you enjoy it, and Deeply Rooted Dreams, as much as we have.

A Short Q & A With Alexander
What would we find under your bed?
Probably a random item or two that my toddler decided to make “disappear” as part of a magic show. I’ve found a measuring tape, my glasses case, one of my wife’s bracelets. You never know what it might be, lol.
What was the scariest moment of your life?
When I was volunteering in the Peace Corps in Costa Rica, I had a pretty scary encounter with a snake while traveling to Nicaragua.
A couple of us were backpacking and staying in a little cabin. One stormy day, after coming back from a long hike, we found a boa constrictor or python of some sort tangled up in some exposed wires in the cabin.
Our guide asked one of us to hold the snake’s head while he tried to untangle the body. I, for some unknown reason, agreed to do this. Right as I was securing my hand around the snake near its head, the power and lights went out.
The guide told me not to move, so I stayed in place but was completely freaking out on the inside. Luckily, it worked out. My friends turned on their flashlights for us.
The guide got the snake untangled, then he took it from me and moved it outside. I think I might have been holding my breath the whole time. Now I’m a little slower to say yes to things.
My appreciation for reptiles is relatively new, thanks to increased visits to the zoo with my son. I still have no plans to hold a snake again, though. Once was enough.
Do you listen to music while writing? If so what?
Yes! Music is a must when writing, working out, and cooking. When writing, I typically listen to music without lyrics. I have a Jazz playlist with Sonny Rollins and John Coltrane. I also listen to this album, Pure Classics, by David Garrett.

How long did it take you to write this book?
It took me about three years to write The Recruiter. I started it while I was still in the corporate world.
I would write either late at night or in the wee hours of the morning when my family was sleeping.
Then two years ago, I left my corporate job to do this full-time and put the finishing touches on The Recruiter.
Deeply Rooted Dreams came next, and it took me a year with dedicated focus.
