W. Alexander is a published author passionate about literary fiction and poetry. His work weaves philosophical and questionable ethical themes.
He loves literature focused on the existential, and his writing is directly influenced by the modernist authors: Franz Kafka, Ernest Hemingway, T.S. Eliot, Fyodor Dostoevsky, J.R.R. Tolkien (his favorite), C.S. Lewis, and F.Scott Fitzgerald. Other writers who influence his work are J.K. Rowling, Jonathan Swift, Issac Asimov, Bernard Cornwell, and Victor Hugo. And of course, Voltaire, the man rightly distinguished from all others, who W. Alexander considers history and literature’s most influential person.
W. Alexander earned his BS: English and Writing: Creative Writing with a Minor in History from Liberty University.
In 2018, he married Olympic ice-dancer Emily Samuelson, in Newport, Rhode Island. His professional goals are publishing novels and short-stories. His interests are literary fiction, poetry, art history, classical history, sketching, philosophy, and traveling. His deepest joy comes from being a father and his faith—W. Alexander serves on the vestry of his local parish, All Saints Wolfeboro.
