In the Past
Alex Marcoux never aspired to be a writer. In her youth, she wanted to be a police detective, but somehow her Leominster High School counselor convinced her she had the aptitude for science and she headed off to the University of Massachusetts, at Amherst. There Alex received a B.S. in Food Science and quickly ended up in a General Foods lab where, as a food technologist, she was instrumental in the product development of Crystal Light, the first "great tasting" diet soft drink. Years later, she worked for Jeffrey Wigand, The Insider from the tobacco industry as a development chemist for Brown & Williamson Tobacco Company. Alex resigned from the tobacco industry in 1991, never returning to conventional research.
Marcoux moved to Colorado in 1991 at the dawn of the anti-GLBT initiative, Amendment 2. The hateful political climate inspired her first book, Façades, published by The Haworth Press, and Alex received a Rocky Mountain Fiction Writers Pen Award for its publication.
Alex's second novel, Back to Salem has been dubbed a "gender-bending thriller" and is a Lambda Literary Award Finalist for best lesbian mystery. The sophomore novel was also an InsightOut Book Club selection. The story drew the attention of Atlantis Moon Productions, an independent film company that produced Back to Salem: The Short using Alex's script.
Her third novel, A Matter of Degrees is a suspense thriller featuring Jessie Mercer, her protagonist from Back to Salem. New York Times bestselling author, Lisa Gardner endorsed the book and advised, “Fasten your seatbelt and prepare for a wild ride.” The book was a Golden Crown Literary Award Finalist and a Gaylactic Spectrum Award Nominee for speculative fiction.
Her first three novels, originally published by The Haworth Press, were picked up by Bella Books and brought back to print and eBook.
Alex has been published in Science of Mind magazine and was the National New Thought Examiner on examiner.com from 2009-2015.
The Authors’ Show selected Alex as one of the 50 Great Writers You Should Be Reading (2010).
