Hi! I’m Danielle Alexander, a writer based in Portland, Oregon. I own and operate a little book and zine store called Grey Grey Books, which went by the name Bombadil Books when we were a storefront space in Grand Rapids, MI. My writing has appeared in The Bandit Zine’s Love & Heartbreak Issue and the Aquinas College Sampler, where my poem Mother received an American Academy of Poet’s Honorable Mention.
I’m a big fan of self-publishing and making artists books. Notable self-publications include two poetry chapbooks: Sunlight Gets Through (2016) and Chasing Rabbits (2016); two collaborative artist’s books, We Sit Together, At the Table (2015) and White Walls: Entelechia (2015); and Ten Lists: A Workbook for Anxiety (2017). You can purchase the latter here.
I have a BFA in English and Creative Writing from Aquinas College and currently work in political communications in Portland, Oregon.
