Welcome to my little corner of the internet, aka Alexis Goes West.

Hailing from a small town in Louisiana known for meat pies and Steel Magnolias (yes, the movie!), I'm Alexis, an iced-coffee-dependent blogger, and screenwriter. During the day I work in social media and marketing for a political media company. At night, I can be found on my velvet couch trying to write the next great rom-com.

While I’m originally from the south, I lived and worked as a magazine editor in New York City for three years. Once my time in that city fizzled out, I headed west to Los Angeles, California to chase my Hollywood writing dreams and Alexis Goes West was officially born.

Here you’ll find musings about Los Angeles, book reviews, an inside look into the art of screenwriting, my adulting adventures, and more. In other words…expect the standard lifestyle blog content with a heaping dose of whatever I feel like saying that day.
