Alex Isle is an Australian author. He writes both novels and short stories in the science fiction/fantasy genre, as well as books and articles of nonfiction, for both adult and young adult (YA) audiences.

In 2014 Isle changed his name from Susan to Alex to reflect a gender identity change and adopted the male pronouns. Publications before 2014 are under the name Sue Isle.[1]

Isle's books include the 1996 YA novel Scale of Dragon, Tooth of Wolf,[2] about a rebellious teen in an alternate-world 16th century joining a group of sorceresses, and nonfiction children's book Wolf Children : the real feral kids : an extraordinary story (1998), as well as a collection of post-apocalyptic stories set in Perth, "Nightsiders", published in 2011.[3] Isle has sold numerous stories to publications such as Aurealis, Orb, ASIM, Agog, Sword and Sorceress, Tales of the Unanticipated [USA] and Shiny, a YA fiction magazine. Isle's other interests include history, science fiction conventions, roleplay gaming, gardening and working out how best to turn his hometown into a post-apocalypse scenario.[citation needed]
