Alexandra Sokoloff's headshot

Alexandra Sokoloff is the million-selling, Thriller Award winning author of fourteen supernatural, horror and crime thrillers. The New York Times has called her "a daughter of Mary Shelley" and her books "Some of the most original and freshly unnerving work in the genre." 

As a screenwriter, she’s sold original scripts and written novel adaptations for numerous Hollywood studios. She is also the workshop leader of the internationally acclaimed Screenwriting Tricks for Authors workshops and workbooks, which have taught authors all over the world how to write better books by using film story structure and screenwriting techniques from their favorite movies.

Alex’s bestselling, Thriller Award-nominated Huntress/FBI books feature a female serial killer, smashing genre conventions and combatting violence against women on the page, screen, and real life. The series draws on her experience teaching incarcerated juveniles in the Los Angeles County prison system, and is being developed for television with Alex as writer/producer.

Sokoloff is an American and Californian, now living in Scotland with bestselling Scottish author husband Craig Robertson. They are available to do book events together.
