In the course of her career Nicole Alexander has worked both in Australia and Singapore in financial services, fashion, corporate publishing and agriculture. A fourth-generation grazier, Nicole returned to her family’s property in the mid-1990s. She is currently the business manager there and has a hands-on role in the running of the property. Nicole has a Master of Letters in creative writing and her novels, poetry, travel and genealogy articles have been published in Australia, Germany, America and Singapore. She is the author of four novels: The Bark Cutters, A Changing Land, Absolution Creek and Sunset Ridge.
Nicole’s latest bestseller Sunset Ridge takes the reader on a journey from rural Queensland to the frontline in Northern France, and is loosely based on the WW1 experiences of her grandfather. Seamlessly interlacing modern Australia with war-torn Europe in the early twentieth century, Sunset Ridge is Nicole’s finest work yet, and is set to cement her status as Australia’s pre-eminent bush storyteller.
