Alma Alexander Book and Novel

Alma Alexander - Author


Alma Alexander is the pen name of Alma A. Hromic. She was born in 1963 in Novi Sad, Yugoslavia, on the shores of the river Danube. Her father's employment with international aid agencies meant that the family spent twenty years living in various countries in Africa, including Zambia, Swaziland, and South Africa.

Educated in the United Kingdom and South Africa, Hromic graduated from the University of Cape Town with an MSc in Microbiology in 1987. She quickly left the lab in order to write about it instead, and spent several years running a scientific journal for the Allergy Society of South Africa before she moved to New Zealand in 1994. She also worked as a literary critic for several publications in South Africa and England.

The first volume of her fantasy series, Changer of Days, was published in October 2001 by HarperCollins Voyager, and the second volume followed in May 2002. Her novel The Secrets of Jin-shei (as Alma Alexander) was published by HarperCollins in May 2004 in the U.S., and was also published in the U.K., Australia, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Italy, and Germany in a total of four languages.

If you like Alma Alexander you might also like to read books by Anchee Min, Amy Tan and Joanne Harris.
