Alexander is a Canadian, residing in Toronto. His debut novel Depth of Deception (A Titanic Murder Mystery) was published in March 2012 to coincide with the centennial anniversary of Titanic. It has been awarded 'Finalist' for E-Book: Mystery/Thriller/Adventure (2012
International Book Awards) as well as Best New E-Book: Fiction category (USA Best Book Awards 2012). His short story thriller Remember Me is part of the Starship Goodwords anthology by Carrick Publishing, and his other short story, Same Crime Tomorrow is available exclusively through Amazon. Alexander is currently finishing up his next novel, LUTETIA (Darkness Beneath the City of Light) a historical thriller featuring a young Victor Hugo. Because he has so much time on his hands (sarcasm) he decided to create a continuing on-line novelization Dracula sequel at
Alexander has also written and directed several short films which have won awards in festivals around the world, including WorldFest Houston's Silver Remi (Suspense-Thriller) for The Missing Piece, a Bronze Remi (Horror/Fantasy) for his vampire short First Light and his comedic spoof Star Wars: Blasted Behavior won Best Foreign Sci-Fi Short at the New York International Film Festival and was a Finalist in the Atom/Lucas Film Star Wars Fan Film Competition (George Lucas was one of the judges).
Depth of Deception was inspired by a 1990 tabloid headline: “Titanic Survivor Found on Iceberg”, and began as an entry into the 3-Day Novel Writing Contest. Alexander's original manuscript, written in 72 hours, was only 70 pages long. Now, with the encouragement of his family and colleagues, Alexander has expanded Depth of Deception into a full length novel, with incorporated elements of a true unsolved murder from turn-of-the-century Glasgow.
