He retraces the steps of his life in search of his unrequited love. But what begins as a journey to fulfill a promise turns into a discovery of the only emotion that defines our lives.
Felix Alexander is a Mexican-born, American-raised novelist, and poet of Mexican and Puerto Rican descent. Acclaimed by readers for his poetic prose, his indie releases include: Dear Love: Diary of a Man’s Desire, a collection of love letters, and poems; and The Romantic, a novel. The release, and increasing popularity of his debut novel has earned Felix a growing audience. With the assistance of the Independent Author Network, and GoodReads, his online presence has gradually expanded across social media platforms: Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Authors Database, Google + and Tsu. Being third-generation military, after a grandfather and uncle who served in the Korean War and Vietnam War, respectively, Alexander is proud of his service in the U.S. Army, and grateful for his experience. After his honorable discharge, he embarked on the long and lonely journey of a writer. Having earned a reputation during his tenure in the military, he vowed to himself, and his fellow soldiers that he would return to the civilian world to answer his true calling. In the last few years, he has also penned a historical fantasy, a mystery thriller, and a MG fantasy to nurture his children’s love of reading. He is currently seeking representation for all three novels. When not spending time with his children, a son and daughter, or fielding 9-1-1 calls as a police dispatcher, he journeys through the portals in his extensive, personal library. When he returns, he immerses himself in his writing, and pursues the scent of his muse. Felix is currently writing a cozy mystery and also a literary romance. He looks forward to beginning the sequels for his three completed manuscripts, soon!
