She authored several suspense thrillers that have landed on the bestselling list in five countries. As a young girl, she dreamt of becoming a writer. She started writing short stories when she was still a teenager. No one was able to read her works, except her brother to whom she shared her secret aspiration.

Despite her many jobs, Alex did not give up on her dream to become a writer. In , she gave up her regular job and reopened her graphic design firm so that she can give more time to writing. She did everything to cut her expenses so that she can financially survive while focusing on writing her first novel.

Some other days are spent on researching, jotting down notes, and thinking about how the story should go. Alex is now among the elite in the writing industry and is a member of International Thriller Writers, Mystery Writers of America, and Sisters in Crime. Her love for crime stories made this series a standout. Alex is not a detective but her books contain reliable details coming from people who are experts in the area.
Every book she writes is based on facts gathered from different sources. She has written several standalone novels and short stories. Her missions have brought her face-to-face with sick-minded criminals who will never hesitate to take her life given the chance. She is wooed by Nick Morelli, a sheriff and later, a head of a national security firm.
Nick was first revealed as a womanizer but his love for Maggie led to his maturity when it comes to love. Some facts about her were given installments. As readers go through the books, they would discover that Maggie had a mother and a brother and that she is waiting for the finalization of her divorce.
This makes Maggie appear human although some of her fans would like to imagine her as a super heroin. The first book, Perfect Evil, Maggie was called to create a picture of a serial killer who has been committing a series of murders in Platte City, Nebraska. Sheriff Nick Morelli wanted to solve the cases right away so that the citizens of this small city will have peace of mind. He thought the murders will stop after a prime suspect was killed but the deaths continue. So, a criminal profiler was sent to the scene to help identify and capture the perpetrators of the crime.
Sparks will start between Nick and Maggie as they work to solve the crime. In the second book the serial killer that Maggie trapped two years ago who was imprisoned, escaped from jail.
Maggie was sure that this killer would be committing crimes again and she was determined to stop him. Her life was at stake but the thoughts of how other victims would suffer from the hands of this killer made her determined to have him captured again once and for all.
The books in this series grips the readers from beginning to end, with twists and turns that will make readers keep on turning the pages.
