Irene Alexander

Irene Alexander is a gifted poet and author of children's books. Her creative efforts were encouraged early in her childhood, by her teacher, Mrs. Helen Dixon, at the one-room Fairview schoolhouse near Barnard, Missouri. Irene credits that early support and validation of her abilities to her ongoing love of creating stories and poetry. Irene continued to receive strong encouragement and guidance throughout her education. You can read more about that in her contribution to the Young At Heart column in the St. Joseph News Press, Sept 6, 2012

Irene graduated from Northwest Missouri State University, where she earned degrees in English and Spanish. Those degrees would eventually land her a teaching opportunity in Mercedes, Texas. She would later apply those teaching skills across the border in Mexico, teaching Sunday School. 

Irene is a longtime member of the Maryville Chapter of the Missouri Writer's Guild.

True Heart

"My person read in the want ads what drew her to me. It was only a few words but they were simple. I think we both knew that it was a match.
