Alex's father was born in the US to a Chinese mother and American father. He teaches Chinese at a university. Her mother was born in China, her family came to America when she was very young. She works in interior decorating as a feng shui expert. Alex was born while they were living in LA and they have moved twice, both times remaining in California.
Uhh I don't really know what else to put here, Alex had a pretty average time in school. She's has had seven boyfriends since senior year of high school, none lasting more than a couple of months. She was the dumper 5 out of the 7 times. She feels like she doesn't have the time or patience for romantic relationships.
Alex has loved words and stories ever since she learned to read. In high school she started writing short stories and prose for the literary magazine, and in college had several short stories published in a sci-fi magazine. When she was 23 she had her first book published, a sci-fi adventure for young adults called Lightstorm. This book was very well received, and was a best seller. She began working on her second book a year and a half ago, but has developed severe writer's block, with about half of the story worked out. Her editor, Sierra Richards, frequently pesters Alex about submitting the next chapters of her book.
takeout food [she really likes Chinese food and pizza best, but also fast food and thai], martial arts movies [especially older ones], neon colors, dragonflies [the animals and designs on clothes and stuff], classical music, being barefoot [if she doesn't HAVE to wear shoes, she won't. if she has to wear shoes, they'll probably be sandals], baggy clothes [at home, she wears a loose t-shirt, a zip up hoodie or an off the shoulder sweatshirt, and stretchy workout pants. when out in public she rarely dresses any nicer than jeans and a nice shirt]
pastel colors, nagging, textbooks, documentaries, hip hop, 'blonde' girls [the ditzy-ness, not necessarily the hair color itself]
Alex is very, very sarcastic, and swears like a sailor [she attempts to cut down on it though for interviews and such]. Despite her foul mouth, she's a very friendly person. She has no qualms about talking to random strangers on the street, and also has a habit of speaking her thoughts aloud, whether she's alone or around people. Some people talk to themselves in their heads, but she just sort of says everything that's on that top level of her consciousness.
If she gets an idea in her head of something she wants to do, she will do it. Very stubborn.
-Writing, of course, haha.
She's may be prone to seeking straightforward solutions for real-world problems, but in her writing she demonstrates an ability to think about things in creative ways. She likes pulling the rug out form under her readers with plot twists and surprises.
[The stuff she took with her into the World]
-A drawstring backpack
-her netbook sized laptop which she uses for writing [it has a Pineapple logo on the top]
-its power cord
-a legal pad and pencils for notes and planning
-a bottle of bright blue nail polish for when the lime begins to flake
-and an mp3 player [with headphones and cord to plug into laptop] with music that she listens to while she writes: classical music, and cinematic scores
