For FICTION writers, she helps new and established authors develop 3-dimensional characters and diverse casts, build realistic worlds, foster reader transportation and absorption into the narrative, and determine best practices for creating the author’s desired narrative and social impact. In her editorial assessment, Alexandra includes ratings for character diversity, realism, and potential social impact. She provides detailed feedback for revisions and offers virtual meetings to discuss next steps. Her developmental assessment is similar, providing feedback on how to develop the narrative based on desired impact.

For NONFICTION writers, Alexandra provides feedback for essays, journal articles, books, and scripts related to political science and current affairs. She currently holds a master’s degree in political science and is finishing her PhD. She specializes in American political behavior, comparative political behavior, and international security. Alexandra has experience with quantitative, qualitative, and experimental research methods.
