Short biography
Alex Brett spent way too much time in graduate school and still managed to leave without a degree, although she does have B.Sc. (Hons) from Dalhousie University. (author on right)But all those years of graduate school were not lost. They were enough to make her realize that she loved writing about science but hated doing it. She also, thanks to Dr. C.C. Lindsey, discovered a love of fish, in all their magnificence and diversity.

Alex has worked as a park naturalist, she's hauled nets as a field technician and she's worked in labs with research interests ranging from invertebrate biology to meteorology. She has worked with animals as diverse as the unisexual jumping wabeen (a little Florida fish, probably now extinct), to stream invertebrates, to olive baboons.

After eight years as a writer, editor and media relations officer with the National Research Council of Canada she left for the joys of writing fiction and a tenuous freelance existence. She has not yet begun to regret the decision.
