Biography

Alexandra Sellers became interested in exotic locations when she was 10 and read "The Arabian Nights". The book inspired her to begin writing, and she penned her first story, a fictionalized account of the life of her cat from the cat's perspective, soon after. When she reached adulthood, Sellers wrote a romantic short story and a science fiction novel. The short story sold immediately, but the science fiction novel was rejected by the first publisher who received it. Sellers took this as a sign to concentrate on the romance genre.cite web|title=Alexandra Sellers|publisher=eHarlequin.Com|url=http://www.eharlequin.com/author.html?authorid=228|accessdate=2007-07-16]

Her first romantic novel was published in 1980, and Sellers became a full-time writer. Many of her novels are set in exotic locations, some of them fictional countries. "Romantic Times" has described her novels as "enchanting...superbly integrating a memorable plot, delightful characters, and tender emotion."
