Hi, I'm Alex Bracken. I'm 26, live in NYC, and I'm an author who actually works in children's publishing. I reblog everything from interesting history tidbits, to fashion, to all of the great nerdy loves of my life.
THE DARKEST MINDS and its sequel, NEVER FADE, are out now and available wherever books are sold. You can check out an excerpt of the first book and nifty things over on TheDarkestMinds.com. You can also follow me on Twitter, or like me on Facebook.
I congratulate Robert Gates on his selection as the twenty-fourth Chancellor of the College of William & Mary. In Bob, one of our nation’s oldest colleges has found one of our nation’s finest public servants. I’m confident that Bob will bring to this new role the same sense of duty and personal integrity that I and other Presidents valued during his distinguished career in government. As he did at Texas A&M and the Department of Defense, Bob will again help lead an institution devoted to our nation’s most precious resource—our young men and women. I wish Bob the very best as he begins this new chapter at his alma mater, which helped to inspire his commitment to public service five decades ago.
