Alexis Harrington’s first book was published in 1994. At that time she established a goal, which she’s maintained to this day, to write believable stories about believable people. If she can make her readers laugh and cry, if she can touch their hearts, she considers she has done her job.

Alexis lives in the Pacific Northwest with two cats, one dog, a finch, and three chickens. When she’s not at one computer or another, she loves to cook, bake, and do fine needlework and sew.
