We are a group of writers and editors dedicated to improving our skills and helping others do the same since 1979.  Please join us at our regular meetings on the fourth Monday of each month.  Guests are welcome to attend. A $5 donation is requested.

Christina Alexandra in January

Christina Alexandra is a romance writer from Southern California. Always on the lookout for an adventure, she has worked and volunteered at many different jobs including both medical and veterinary offices, music teacher, law enforcement instructor, service dog puppy raiser, emergency grief counselor, coroner’s assistant and, currently, an emergency services operator.

Christina writes stories set in Georgian and Regency England and credits her varied experiences as the foundation from which she builds true-to-life characters and emotional stories with a unique twist on modern issues. When not researching, writing or working, Christina spends her spare time travelling, cooking – oftentimes with a historical flare – and staying active on social media. Find out more about Christina on her website, www.christinaalexandra.net.

We meet at the San Diego County Health Services Center, 3851 Rosecrans, San Diego, CA 92110.

A Marketing Support Group meets at 5:30 p.m., before the regular meeting. Anyone interested in sharing or learning about marketing tips is welcome to attend.
