Sandra has been writing poems and short stories since middle school, and writing full length, self-published novels since 2010, using several pen names.

Writing full-length steamy romance series has quickly become a love for this author. Her stories have elements of humor, family issues, suspense and personal growth. Her books take the reader right into the bedroom with the characters to feel the same intensity as the lovers do in the story. Sandra's goal is to have the reader rooting for the main couple...and she doesn't disappoint.

You'll find this author working out weekday mornings at ungodly hours. She's gluten and dairy free, and is probably the only person on earth who doesn't do coffee or chocolate.

Her favorite movie is Bohemian Rhapsody, her favorite tv shows are Friends and The Connors. She's also a die-hard Rocky fan and has read the Fifty Shades trilogy and watched the movies more times than she cares to admit.

Sandra is married with two daughters and is a lover of all things four-legged, including her own two furbabies.

When former soldier Michelle leaves her military career, she continues to work in another combat role, that of a bodyguard. Her first assignment is to travel with the rock band Storm. It’s not all fun and games, but she quickly begins to bond with the lead singer Billy, whose reputation far exceeds her personal knowledge of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Fellow band members begin to notice a subtle change in Billy’s usual behavior when Michelle is around and put the pieces together long before either the bodyguard or the singer realizes where their hearts are headed. As Billy adopts the protective demeanor of the alpha male toward her, Michelle continues to remind him of her former career which included being the target of live gunfire. Was she too much for him to handle? Did he even want to try?

Dress Rehearsal: A Rock Star Romance Series Book 1 by Sandra Alex combines a raw reflection of life on the road with the unexpected innocence of a battle-scarred soldier. Author Sandra Alex provides an inside view of the often caustic existence of musicians trying to make a name for themselves while maintaining a clean public image. Fast-paced, at times erotic, and highly descriptive, A Rock Star Romance is the perfect beach read. This feel-good romance includes just the right amount of danger to propel the action but rewards the reader with all the perks of a solid storyline. While at first a seemingly predictable plot, Sandra Alex includes enough of the unexpected to keep the reader turning the pages. I can't wait for the second book in the series!
