Westlake author Alex Kiester finds early success

When Alex Kiester was 7, she knew she wanted to be a writer. “As a kid I walked around making up stories in my head.”

It turned out to be a useful skill for the driven young novelist, who has achieved remarkable success at an early age.

At 25, she started writing seriously. At 29, the Westlake High School grad achieved her first commercial success when her first novel, “In Her Skin,” was published after it won a competition by the Writers’ League of Texas. That led to an offer from a literary agent.

“In Her Skin” launched Kiester’s career when her voiced book appeared as an Audible Original on the Audible website and app. Her mystery thriller by Ella was ranked in the Top 10 Audible Originals the month it was released.
