Urcelia Teixeira is a mystery and thriller author of clean, fast-paced archaeological action-adventure novels.
Her Alex Hunt Adventure Thriller Series has been described by readers as ‘Indiana Jones meets Lara Croft.’
She read her first book when she was four and wrote her first poem when she was seven. And though she lived precariously through books and her far too few travels, life happened. She married the man of her dreams and birthed three boys (and two dogs, a cat, three chickens, and some goldfish!). So, life became all about settling down and providing a means to an end. She climbed the corporate ladder, exercised her entrepreneurial flair and made her mark in real-estate.
Traveling and exploring the world made space for child-friendly annual family holidays by the sea. The ones where she was forced to build a sand castle and barely got past the first five pages of a book. And on the odd chance she managed to read fast enough to page eight, she was confronted with a moral dilemma as the umpteenth F-word forced its way off just about every page!
But in a strange twist of fate upon her return from yet another male-dominated camping trip, when fifty knocked hard and fast on her door, and she could no longer stomach the profanities in her reading material, she drew a line in the sand and bravely set off to create her own adventure!
It was in the dark, quiet whispers of the night, well past midnight in the year 2017, that Alex Hunt was born.
