About the author:
Alex Blackwell is a frequent author writing about sailing technology and sailing adventures, contributing to several magazines, websites and e-zines. He has enjoyed a professional career as copywriter, marketer and speaker. Born in Chicago, Alex and his family moved to Clew Bay, Ireland when he was 14. Because of his mother's German heritage, Alex went to school in Germany, where he earned a Master of Science degree in Marine Biology. After starting an oyster hatchery in Ireland, he went to America for a six-month research project. As many people do he stayed for 20 years. There he was a partner in a marketing support services firm and commercial printing company which included a book printing division.
The Butterfly Effect: It started with 9/11, Alex's first novel, is strictly fiction. It is woven out of the fabric of historical events, his personal experience, and his fertile imagination. After successfully publishing a book about boat anchoring (Happy Hooking - The Art of Anchoring) and an oyster cookbook (Oyster Delight by Jonathan Mite), a novel was begging to come out. The next novel is already in the works, as are other projects.
9/11 changed everything for Alex and his Ukrainian-American wife, Daria. In 2008 they left their high-powered lives behind, boarded their boat and sailed across the North Atlantic to resettle in Ireland.
