About the Author
For fifteen years, from 1998-2013, Alexandra was self-employed in the financial services industry in El Paso, Texas. As a small business owner who was active in the community and on various civic boards, she learned first-hand the challenges that excessive regulations create for small businesses. In 2012 she received the SBA's Regional Minority Small Business Champion of the Year award.
In 2010, Alexandra and her mother incorporated Frontier 2000 Media Group to produce clean, wholesome, inspirational entertainment for families. She re-released No Regrets with a new foreword to the twentieth anniversary edition of the book updating readers on what her family is doing today. She is also co-author of The Fourth Kingdom, and The Twelfth Juror, published in 2010, The Chosen, published in 2012 and The Force published in 2013. The Fourth Kingdom was selected as one of four finalists in the Christianity Today 2011 Christian Fiction Book Awards. Her newest solo novel, The Planner, about the dangerous consequences of over-reaching, progressive federal government, was released June 28, 2012.

The only issue that I do not completely agree with is the speed at which the Swann children earned their degrees. There is something to be said about having the proper maturity for college studies, something which will only come with age and time. Therefore, I do not think it is best for children to be accelerated through their studies at such a pace. But this is only a minor issue, and each family must decide for itself what will work best in their given situation.
For anyone -- homeschoolers, those considering homeschoolers and for any parent -- this book is a must read! It is uplifting and will leave you convinced that with God's grace you CAN succeed!
Alexandra is an engaging writer and I read the book in 1 day. She was the oldest of 10 children being homeschooled and all earning their masters degrees *at home* by age 16. I also really benefitted from reading the articles written by her mother at the Homeschool World Practical Homeschooling website.
The negative is the cover of the book. It definitely does not make sense to me on why she would have a sexy picture of herself on the front cover. The front cover does not speak for the book at all.
