Alex Beecroft currently lives in Great Britain with her husband and two daughters. Raised in Cheshire, Alex studied English and Philosophy before accepting employment with the Crown Court where she worked for a number of years.

Alex will tell you that she's thrilled to be doing what she always wanted to do, living her dream of being a writer, and a soon to be published romance author.

"There's not much to tell. I've written most of my life. I can't not write, or I get very cranky and bad tempered, as my family can attest. But it was only this year that I finally decided to try my hand at submitting something for publication.

I've always enjoyed m/m romance and written it for my own pleasure, I just had no idea before that there was a market out there and other people like me, who would like to see it too." Alex Beecroft

False Colors won a 2009 Rainbow Awards as Best LGBT Historical.

1762, The Georgian Age of Sail: For his first command, John Cavendish is given a ship—the HMS Meteor—and a crew, both in need of repair and discipline. He’s determined to make a success of their first mission, and hopes the well-liked lieutenant Alfred Donwell will stand by his side as he leads his new crew into battle: stopping the slave trade off the coast of Algiers.

Alfie knows their mission is futile, and that their superiors back in England will use the demise of this crew as impetus for war with the Ottoman Empire. But the darker secret he keeps is his growing attraction for his commanding officer—a secret punishable by death.

With the arrival of his former captain—and lover—on the scene of the disastrous mission, Alfie is torn between the security of his past and the uncertain promise of a future with the straight-laced John.

Against a backdrop of war, intrigue, and personal betrayal, the high seas will carry these men through dangerous waters from England to Africa to the West Indies in search of a safe harbor.

Oh wow! What a wonderful surprise, Elisa! I'm over the moon to know Captain's Surrender has a place in your top 100 list. Wow, how cool! Thank you so much! Now I only wish I could have been more interesting for the spotlight :)

If you want you can add something to the post, it will remain on front page for all the week and after it will be linked on the list. I stopped to ask author for something personal, since most of the time, it was quite hard to plan. But I am open, and the post too, if you want to add something. Elisa

Oh, I didn't mean that the spotlight was lacking anything! I just meant that I was not a very interesting person to have to talk about ;) I certainly can't think of anything else that needs to be said. I think you covered it all. Thank you so much again! Squee! :)

(But I'm further flattered by the offer. Thank you!)

Alex is AWESOME, and you are so terrific to spotlight her. She is a delicious writer, and when I read Captain's Surrender it was as though I just wanted to float around on it for days afterward. I have False Colors on pre-order.

Alex Beecroft is relatively new to the M/M overview, but she is a fast runner ;-) I bet that False Colors will match Captain's Surrender soon in this list. Elisa
