Alexis Powers was born in Manhattan. When she was in her 20's, she moved to southern California where she married and had two daughters. Her writing career began when the children were grown. Her first novel, Kiss My Tattoo, was a huge success followed by Kiss Daddy Goodbye and Kiss Amanda For Me. Besides writing a non-fiction book, Paths to Freedom, Alexis wrote three novels with co-author Rayford Hammond. Last year she published a children's book that she'd dreamed of writing for over 25 years, Madi's Dollhouse.
Don't Die Before Paris, is a sometimes funny, sometimes sad story of her life after her husband died when her daughters were 12 and 13 leaving them penniless. Alexis was already deep into a drinking problem but she continued to work and raise her daughters as a single mother. Sober for over 25 years, Alexis wrote her story to inspire mothers to accept their role in their children's lives.
The Adventure of John Quincy Adam is a wonderful children's book with luscious photos by Jane McCutchen.
After living in southern California for many years, Alexis moved to Albuquerque, New Mexico but the altitude affected her health. The Writer's Workshop she conducts twice a month at the Oro Valley Library has been well attended. Alexis has helped many writers achieve their goal to be published. Her passion for writing has kept her busy for over 20 years. Visit her website: www.alexispowers.net
