About Alexander

YA Fantasy Author and Mental Health Editor

Alexander Lockwood is a young adult fantasy (and sometimes horror) author from the United Kingdom. Living with major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder and trauma, he is also a mental health advocate and works full-time as a senior editor for leading health publication, The Mighty.

He is a lover of portal fantasy, stories about unlikely heroes taking on oppressive governments, and stories about the roles that destiny and free will play in the lives of his characters. His experience with mental illness and trauma allows him to weave these rich themes through his writing.

He also offers freelance editing and proofreading services when possible with a particular interest in mental health sensitivities.

He is currently working on his first novel and is seeking representation.
