Alexa Verde penned her first literary masterpiece, a rhymed poem, at the ripe age of eight, and since has had 200 short stories, articles, and poems published in the five languages that she speaks. She has a bachelor degree in Spanish, a master’s in Russian, and enjoys writing about characters with diverse cultures. She’s worn the hats of reporter, teacher, translator, model (even one day counts!), caretaker, and secretary, but thinks that the writer’s hat suits her the best. After traveling the world and living in both hemispheres, she calls a small town in south Texas home. The latter is an inspiration for the fictional setting of her series Rios Azules Christmas and Secrets of Rios Azules.

  8. Winnie Thomas

    The only intrigue or suspense I’ve experienced at Christmas is trying to guess what is in my presents.

  9. Penny A

    I am in agreement with Winnie, trying to figure out what was in the package was the biggest mystery I faced.

  10. Janice Moore

    The only suspense at Christmas is whether my gifts to others will be liked! However, I love suspense books at Christmas and any time of the year!

  11. Bobbie

    I’ve not experienced intrigue during the Christmas holidays, but in a way I think it could be fun as long as it ended well. I think it would be exciting!
