Alex R Crawford is the author of The Time Writer, a Historical Time Travel Adventure series. Alex grew up in Southern California and traveled the world with her military husband and daughters. She has lived in Los Angeles, Texas, Georgia, Missouri, Virginia, and over six years in Germany. Crawford now calls the history-rich Washington D.C. area home.

Alex obtained a B.S. in Marketing and International Business and was one class short of having a minor in History. Which she regrets not completing (She loves history!). She did not complete the two master’s degrees she started in International Relations and Human Relations, which she does not regret.

Once upon a time, she worked for the United States Federal Government as a writer, copyeditor, social media manager, and webmaster. Previous to working in public affairs, Crawford worked for the U.S. Marine Corps and U.S. Army in managing various outreach positions supporting service members and their families. Now, she is a full-time novelist, avid reader, and wrangles her dogs and cats.

When her nose isn’t in a book or fingers typing away, she enjoys visiting historical points-of-interest and museums.
