Alexandra Ivy Author Bio

I’m not exactly sure when I fell in love with books. Probably on my mother’s knee listening to her read Dr. Seuss to me. I do remember that I was barely old enough to cross the street by myself when I discovered the delights of the local library. Could anything be more wonderful than spending summer days surrounded by stacks of Nancy Drew mysteries? Over the years I fell in love with Victoria Holt, Jane Austen, Agatha Christie, and J.R.R. Tolkien just to name a few. I read poetry, essays, biographies, and plays. In fact, I read anything I could get my hands on.

Years later (no, I’m not admitting how many) I’m still an avid reader, and my tastes are still as varied as they were in my youth, which I suppose helps to explain why I enjoy writing regency historicals under the name of Deborah Raleigh, as well as my contemporary paranormals as Alexandra Ivy. For now that is enough to keep me busy, but who knows what the future might hold!

I do have a few other loves in my life besides reading and writing, the most important being my unbelievably patient husband, David, and my two sons, Chance and Alexander. Without their constant support and belief in me, I never could have been able to follow my dreams. They are truly my heroes.

Christmas Poem by Alexandra Ivy

Twas the night before Christmas
And all through the night
Were hundreds of demons
All ready to fight.
The dark lord was approaching
Come hell or high water
And not even a miracle
Could halt the coming slaughter.

When what in the distance
Could be seen flying near?
A miniature gargoyle
Not some stupid reindeer.

Levet flew into the battle,
His heart filled with dread.
He was going to become a hero
Even if he ended up dead.

With magic his only weapon,
And only his courage as a shield,
He faced the evil tide,
Refusing to yield.

But he was heard to exclaim
As the fey drew their bows,
Dear Santa please don’t forget,
The Xbox I asked for…oh, and a date with JLo.

— Levet

The Sylvermysts have a reputation as sinister cousins to the fey, and none are more mysterious than Ariyal and his tribe. To save his people from banishment, he faces a new challenge: Jaelyn, an elite vampire warrior sent to capture him. By rights, he should kill her on sight. Yet he cannot bring himself to hurt her—or to resist her…

Jaelyn is stunningly beautiful, utterly lethal—and always alone. Until Ariyal. From their first encounter, she knows that what’s between them is more dangerous than simple lust. And as they unite to thwart a terrifying prophecy that will mean the end of his clan and of the world they know, she will risk everything to fulfill her destiny by his side.
