Miss Alexandrina

The thinking-space of a not-quite novelist


I turn 21 in less than a month, and it reminds me that I ought to update this page… Soon, my friends, soon… After my exams…


River Song, anyone? Dec 2013

Escapism is 20-year-old Alexandrina Brant’s forte, be that in snuggling down on the sofa for an episode of Endeavour, dancing to thirties swing whilst being Treasurer of the society’s accounts, or roleplaying Lady Summer in her NeoVictorian gear.

For a list of her current active (ie. non-abandoned) work-in-progress fiction novels, see the page under the ‘books’ tab.

In her non-existent spare time, she plays primarily as Chaser for the Reading Rocs Quidditch team, sings lyrical mezzo-soprano in the Reading University chamber choir, and is forever looking for the right match with whom to share a fine pinot grigio has found her best friend and partner, who happens to know little about dancing, wine or God, but has the kindest soul, most forgiving mind, and gentlemanly manner.

My partner and I, May 2015

I am studying my BA in Psychology and Philosophy. In June 2014, I was confirmed into the Catholic Church, a decision which has been the best of my life, as my fortune continue to grow the closer I get to God.
