Alex George is a writer and a lawyer. He was born in England, but presently lives in Columbia, Missouri.
His novel, A GOOD AMERICAN, was published in hardcover by Amy Einhorn Books, an imprint of Penguin/Putnam in February 2012, with the paperback released in February 2013. He is now hard at work on his new novel, provisionally entitled A HISTORY OF FLIGHT.
Alex has been named as one of Britain’s top ten “thirtysomething” novelists by the Times of London, and was also named as the Independent on Sunday’s “face to watch” for fiction in its Fresh Talent feature.
Alex read law at Oxford University and worked for eight years as a corporate lawyer in London and Paris. He moved to the United States in 2003, and re-qualified as a US attorney. He now runs his own law firm in Columbia, Missouri.
Alex has two children, Hallam and Catherine. His hobbies include listening to obscure jazz albums, playing his saxophone, and cooking (and eating) complicated meals. He is proud to be President of the board of the Voluntary Action Center, a leading nonprofit organization in mid-Missouri.
