#MeToo and the Huntress Moon Thrillers

on October 30, 2017

by Alexandra Sokoloff I have had a lot going on this week, what with a new book in my Huntress Moon thriller series out and, oh yes – getting married! Please. Spare me. These aren’t secrets. These are facts of rape culture. These entitled, predatory men have been blatant about their misogyny and abuse, and… Read More

I’m the Thriller Award-winning and Bram Stoker and Anthony Award-nominated author of the Amazon bestselling crime and supernatural thrillers The Harrowing,The Price, Book of Shadows, The Unseen, The Space Between, and the Thriller Award-nominated Huntress/FBI thriller series: Huntress Moon, Blood Moon, Cold Moon, Bitter Moon, and Hunger Moon. The New York Times Book Review has called me “a daughter of Mary Shelley” and my novels “some of the most original and freshly unnerving work in the genre.” I’m a California native and a graduate of U.C. Berkeley, where I majored in theater and minored in everything that Berkeley has a reputation for. After college I moved to Los Angeles, where I’ve made an interesting living doing novel adaptations and selling original thriller scripts to various Hollywood studios. In my stories I like to cross the possibility of the supernatural with very real life explanations for any strangeness going on, and base the action squarely in fact. The Unseen is based on real paranormal research conducted at the Duke University parapsychology lab, and Book of Shadows teams a Boston homicide detective and a practicing Salem witch in a race to solve what may be a Satanic killing. The Space Between, is an edgy supernatural YA about a troubled high school girl who is having dreams of a terrible massacre at her school, and becomes convinced that she can prevent the shooting if she can unravel the dream. I also have written paranormal romance (The Shifters,Keeper of the Shadows) and the non-fiction workbooks Screenwriting Tricks for Authors and Writing Love, based on my internationally acclaimed workshops and blog. I live in Los Angeles and in Scotland, with Scottish crime author Craig Robertson. When I’m not writing I dance: jazz, ballet, salsa, Lindy, swing — I do it all, every chance I get.

What is this thing called love?

on May 8, 2015

The third book in my Huntress Moon series is out this week, and I thought I’d take a break from my usual posts and interviews about the crime and suspense aspects of the series and talk a little about the love story. (What???) Yes, I know. I may have written some paranormal mystery/romance, but nobody… Read More

My Scottish Romance

on August 8, 2014

By Alexandra Sokoloff The first thing you have to know is – I am not a romance author. Yes, my thrillers are sexy and suspenseful, but they’re also dark, and some of them are downright spooky. That being said, I have written some paranormal romance, mainly due to the fact that I will do anything… Read More
