In February we welcomed two new Rogues–ALEX KAVA and ISABELLA MALDONADO! We are over the moon with excitement to have these two impressive women join our crew!

ALEX KAVA is the New York Times, USA Today and Amazon best-selling author of the award-winning, critically acclaimed FBI profiler Maggie O’Dell series and a new series featuring former marine, Ryder Creed and his K-9 search and rescue dogs.

In Alex’s LOST CREED tackled the challenge of human trafficking and was awarded the 2019 Nebraska Book Award.

Published in over thirty-six countries, and selling 7+ million copies, Alex’s novels have made the bestseller lists in the UK, Australia, Germany, Japan, Italy, and Poland.

Her stand-alone novel, ONE FALSE MOVE, was chosen for the 2006 One Book One Nebraska and her political thriller, WHITEWASH, was one of January Magazine’s best thrillers of the year.

Her novel STRANDED pairing Maggie O’Dell and Ryder Creed for the first time, was awarded both a Florida Book Award and the Nebraska Book Award. She is a member of the Nebraska Writers Guild and a founding member of International Thriller Writers.

Alex divides her time between Omaha, Nebraska and Pensacola, Florida.

Wall Street Journal bestselling author ISABELLA MALDONADO wore a gun and badge in real life before turning to crime writing. The first Latina to attain the rank of captain in her police department, she retired as the Commander of Special Investigations and Forensics.

During more than two decades on the force, her assignments included hostage negotiator, department spokesperson, and precinct commander. A graduate of the FBI National Academy in Quantico, she uses her law enforcement background to bring a realistic edge to her novels, which have been translated into 20 languages. 

THE CIPHER, the first book in her bestselling series featuring FBI Special Agent Nina Guerrera, has been optioned by Netflix for a feature film starring Jennifer Lopez.

So fun to have new Rogues Alex and Isabella in the group! We can’t wait to read their first Rogue blogs!
