Alexandra Burt is a freelance translator based in the US. Born near Frankfurt in Germany, she moved to Texas over 20 years ago. While pursuing literary translations, she decided to tell her own stories. After years of writing classes and gluttonous reading, her short fiction has appeared in fiction journals and literary reviews. She also teaches short story writing at a local college. Remember Mia was her first novel, a dark, psychological thriller, published as Little Girl Gone in the UK where it was a bestseller. It was also a bestseller in Germany and sold in many other countries. It has been optioned for a tv series.
Her second novel, The Good Daughter, was published in 2017 and her third novel, The Shadow Garden, is out in July 2020. Both are also domestic noir thrillers set in the US – focusing in particular on the mother/daughter relationship.
