My First Interview…please check it out

I’ve had my first interview with Romance Writers on the Journey. I hope you can stop by and visit. Leave a comment and be entered in a drawing for a gift.

If you are new to my blog, welcome! I’d love to hear from you.



Spring is the time for planting…and sprucing up my blog

Today was a beautiful Easter day in New Jersey. Lately we’ve been getting a lot of rain, but the result is a lot of green trees and blooming flowers. Not good if you suffer from allergies, but pretty to look at. I was finally able to plant some pansies this weekend, hence the picture.

If you haven’t checked out my blog in a while, I’ve been busy making some enhancements. I’ve added links to my writer ‘fan’ page on Facebook along with my 2011 reading list on Goodreads. I’ve updated my summary for A Chance for Love, in addition to adding an excerpt. I also added a blurb for my current work in progress, A Second Chance for Love. I know…the title is not very original. I’ve tried to think of different titles, but the more I get into the story (Kate and Edward’s story from A Chance for Love) the more I think it’s appropriate.

Stay tuned for details regarding my upcoming interview on Romance Writers on the Journey.


Who is that masked writer?

Those of you who have visited my site within the past week may have noticed that the title of my blog has changed. Maybe you thought you had typed in the wrong URL and wondered who this Maria K. Alexander person is. Well let me assure you that it’s still me but under my new pen name. In preparing for RWA National conference in June, I finally bit the bullet and choose a pen name after literally obsessing over it for more than six months.

Over the next couple days, I will be changing my WordPress URL as well. So, your best bet to get to my site is:

It will find me regardless of my WordPress link.

Stay tuned for enhancements I’m planning for my site, along with some upcoming events.
