Marilyn Alexander (Maralexa)

Joined 7 years ago from Vancouver, Canada and San Jose del Cabo, Mexico




Also follow me on:

"Two Old Boomers Riding a Beemer through the Baja" - Currently, Marilyn is writing about her travels through the Baja Peninsula in Mexico. She is focusing on her favourite beaches! Balandra in La Paz, Chileno beaches #3 and #5 between Cabo San Lucas and San Jose del Cabo. She can be reached at

Maralexa on HubPages Marilyn's articles range from caring for seniors to caring for endangered animals, from philosophy to romance and 'twilight zone' stories. She writes articles for mobility product providers in the medical and not-for-profit sectors, and contributes articles to newsletters for seniors.

I Love Writing! This is new for me. I'm told I have potential. No one is saying I'm great, or even good. But what they are saying is so motivating. If you read my short stories and wish to critque my efforts, please feel free to do so. I would appreciate it greatly.

Crossing the Threshold is my favourite so far.

As just plain Marilyn, I am an ardent chocolate lover, a lover of kittens, cats, puppies and dogs, synthetic ivory, and cloisonné, Chinese brush paintings and silk paintings.

Writing, boating, gardening and Chinese brush painting are favorite pastimes.

I Do Not Feel Old

My imagination sometimes runs wild and I stray into the 'twilight' zone of writing about aliens who give up an essential of life to help an 856 year old laborer help them.

This is one of my favourite hubs. I wish more people would read it - but I don't know how to make it more attractive to potential viewers.
