Marcus Alexander biography and books reviewed

After several incident-filled years of travelling the armpits of the world Marcus Alexander decided to pack in all serious attempts at reaching maturity and instead embraced the much more suitable world of parchment scribbling for a living.

'Who is Charlie Keeper?' is Marcus' artfully addictive novel that comes first in a planned trilogy involving the spirited and often outrageously blunt Charlie.

Marcus Alexander has a fondness for causing mischief, knows how to run really, really fast when he's in trouble and knows how to duck out of sight when someone points the long, bony finger of blame.

If you feel as though you should get in contact with this ill mannered rascal and you honestly have nothing more constructive to do with your day than you can always reach him at....

"...as fast and as intruiging as Rowling and as funny and as humorous as Pratchett..." Fuzion

...it's an awesome book. I had to keep turning the pages and found it next to impossible to put down..." Pharcyde Promotions

Crow's Revenge by Marcus Alexander

Charlie Keeper has been forced from her home by a bloodthirsty and terrifying stranger. But in escaping she discovers her house holds the gateway to the Realm of Bellania - a place of myth, magic... and an evil Lord with a very bad attitude. Now its fate rests squarely upon Charlie's shoulders. But before she can untangle the mystery that will save Bellania, she needs the answer to a life-changing secret her guardian, the dastardly Mr Crow, has been keeping from her... Just who is Charlie Keeper?

"You simply must go out and buy Keeper of the Realms, the story and artwork are excellent and they compliment each other in the same way as Chris Riddell 's artwork and Paul Stewart's storytelling do on their wonderful Edge Chronicles. The improvements that were needed in the initial book lay in the editing department, which is of course always the most difficult and expensive problem that self-published authors face. But now that the mighty Puffin behind the book readers will find that all these issues have been ironed out and the book is better than ever! Book of the Month for 2009 and and 2012!"

Who is Charlie Keeper? by Marcus Alexander

‘Who is Charlie Keeper?’ is the shockingly paced fantasy novel that tells the tale of Charlie, an iron-willed, twelve year old girl suffering an unjust and unhappy fate. Forced to flee her home in the gloomy, rain-drenched landscape of London by a bloodthirsty and terrifying new foe, she escapes to the vibrant, parallel land of Bellania with nothing more than her common sense and razor-sharp wits to keep her safe. Bellania, a land of myth, magic and marauding giants with bad attitude and poor anger management.
