Alexandra Winter believes in books that inspire women to be themselves and to believe in their own capabilities.
Alexandra was born in 1985 and grew up in a small town 30 minutes outside of Oslo, Norway. After picking boxes in a warehouse, selling ads, managing a clothing store, banking and more, she took classes in leadership and worked in management. She was too creative so she decided to follow that dream. To work creatively.
After picking boxes in a warehouse, selling ads, managing a clothing store, banking and more, she took classes in leadership and worked in management.
During a vacation, reading on a beach in Koh Tao, she found herself disappointed by the main character.
A helpless woman who needed a man to help her. The man helped her, she fell in love with him. End of story. It didn’t reflect the women she knew.
That day, the first chapter to Amalie was written.
“Women deserve to be portrayed as they are in real life. Smart, hard-working and interesting.”
She quit her job, rented out her apartment, and sold her motorcycle and car to finance a new beginning.
April 6th 2016, her boyfriend and Alexandra packed up their life in Norway and drove their 1968 model Fiat 1100, packed full, from Norway to Portugal to pursue their dreams. All 3277 km (2036 miles).
Alexandra now writes wherever she is. Current location: South Africa.
