Alexandra Camille Renwick was designed in Canada, built in California, and released in Texas. While an undergraduate at the University of Toronto she received the Elsie Gregory MacGill Prize, eventually completing a degree in Women’s Studies and Fine Art. She’s the author of dozens of short stories, including her award-nominated collection Push of the Sky (written as Camille Alexa) which earned a starred review in Publishers Weekly and was an official reading selection of Powell’s Books SF Book Club. She cites a mixed cultural heritage and bohemian parents as chief influences, particularly the folkloric expertise and murder-ballad songsterism of her Caribbean father, and the amateur botany practiced by her artistic Scandinavian mother.
A US/Canadian dual citizen, she currently hops across international and genre boundaries, splitting time between crime & mystery, science fiction, and literary fabulism somewhere between Portland, Austin, and Ottawa.
