Alex Ames was born in 1964 in the Beatlemania / Babyboomer years and was raised with some of the greatest spy and action writers of the Sixties/Seventies/Eighties on his pillow.
He always dreamed to -- but never dared to -- become a famous jewel thief or computer hacker or super spy. After some consideration the only morally feasible option was to become a writer and to write something along the lines of "To Catch a Thief meets Stephanie Plum". Calendar Moonstone - acclaimed jewelry maker for the rich and royals and famous and part time cat burglar was born.
Alex currently lives in Munich, Germany. He passes the German Central Intelligence Agency every day commuting to work -- hey, isn't that another great opportunity for a story? What if... a boring accountant was a former spy and is involved in a work related mystery that will need all his skills... (Stay tuned for "Troubleshooter", coming later in 2013)
