Alexandra D Smith was born in Indiana, raised in Pennsylvania, matriculated from Regents’ Park College in London, UK. Ms Smith’s interest in the Bible started in her earliest youth. Her parents kept several versions of it on a shelf together, with collections of myths and folktales from around the world. Her childhood fascination with the almost endlessly possible interpretations of what originally had been one text led her to research and write this experimental series about many of the key figures in the New Testament.
Ms Smith is an avid gardener and reader. She keeps a house rabbit and doesn’t own a microwave. She still retains a preference for the stately poetry of the King James Version.
