About Alex Melton
History needs people to create itself
People are leaves on the tree of Destiny.
Stories map the wind that shakes the leaves

Alex lives and works happily in sunny New Zealand,
with a supportive partner, in a house with glimpses of city,
and sea and woodlands
And a rescued cat who believes she rules
- even pretending to be abandoned to gain power.
As you can see from the picture.
She is an AristoCat,
thankful the garden is too small for us to have a dog.
Now the children are grown it is delightful to watch the sun rising,
hear birds socialising and write tales of far-off lands and times
As we go through life
The only thing certain is change - until we find that
someone who helps us live with it - and that is
a whole new life story
What greater challenge can there be than to meet
someone who brings out the hidden you
Alex loves to write about how people accept (or not) change in life and living - BCE Mediterranean, Egypt, Greece - Victorian London (and Australia)
after the Crimean
Alex is working on writing about Georgian England - and what happens to people under the lowering
storm of more recent WW ll
