I'm Alexandra Sokoloff.

I'm a million-selling, Thriller Award-winning author and screenwriter.

And I teach a workshop all over the world (and now online) that helps writers write better books and scripts - by learning from the movies.

Come jump-start the book you've always wanted to write while we watch some great movies!

Alexandra Sokoloff is the million-selling, award-winning author/screenwriter of fourteen crime and supernatural thrillers. The NY Times calls her books "Some of the most original and freshly unnerving work in the genre." Her Thriller Award-nominated Huntress Moon series follows a haunted FBI agent on the hunt for a female serial killer, turning hated tropes of violence against women inside out. She is also the author/teacher of the internationally acclaimed Stealing Hollywood workbooks, workshops, and blog. She lives in Los Angeles and in Scotland.
