“As a writer, Alexandra's range is broad – having written first an extraordinary biography of her great grandfather Henry Villard – a story well told and well researched about one of the great tycoons of American history.
And a few years later, she created a book of poetry that is unmatched in its beauty. She conceived the idea of illustrating her poems with Indian Mughal paintings. The poems were inspired by the tragic events of 9/11 and were designed to give hope and solace to the families of the victims.
Now, she has produced another exquisite book of poetry based on the Ten Worlds of Buddhist philosophy and illustrated with seventeenth century Japanese art.
This multi-faceted author is a woman of generous spirit and great heart.”
