VJ Books Presents Author Alex Kava!

Author Alex KavaAlex Kava grew up in the country outside Silver Creek, Nebraska. She earned a bachelor's degree in art and English from College of Saint Mary in Omaha, Nebraska. She has done a variety of jobs, from working as a hospital tech, cleaning and sterilizing utensils from surgery, pathology and the morgue, to running her own graphic design firm, designing national food labels and directing television and radio commercials.

In 1996 she quit her job as a public relations director to dedicate herself to writing a novel and getting published. To pay the bills, she refinanced her home, maxed out her credit cards and even took on a newspaper delivery route.

Kava is the New York Times best-selling author of the critically acclaimed Maggie O'Dell series and a new series featuring former marine, Ryder Creed and his K9 dogs. Her novels are published in over thirty countries. She is also a co-author of the e-novellas Slices of Night and Storm Season with Erica Spindler and J.T. Ellison.

She is a member of the Nebraska Writers Guild and a founding member of International Thrillers Writers. Alex writes full-time and lives in Omaha, Nebraska and Pensacola, Florida.
