Natasha Alexander lives, writes, and makes things up on the North Carolina coast. The fictional town of Moon Beach, home to an eccentric cast of characters and the setting for Moon Beach Magic and Moon Beach Mayhem, is based on her travels through every funky coastal town from North Carolina to the Texas/Mexico border.

Before turning to fiction, Natasha spent more than twenty years conducting ethnographic research, where she learned to shut up and listen to people. These skills are crucial for creating memorable characters and telling their stories in Moon Beach. She eavesdrops at the grocery store and gym, chats up strangers at the brewery or bluegrass jam, and pets every dog she meets while walking along the beach.

She believes in the power of laughter and live music.
