Catching up with Xavier Axelson

What have you been up to since we saw you last?
Mayhem, chaos and creation…in that order. I’ve been recovering from a nasty shoulder injury (rotator cuff tear) and writing as much as I can.

I really enjoyed your interviews at The Examiner ((did I remember right?). What happened to those & will you be resuming them? […]

Xavier Axelson and VELVET

Nice to have you visit again,Xavier.

Thanks for having me!


What have you been up to lately?

Causing widespread hysteria, indulging in debauchery and making boys cry.

You’re a mess…:)


Please tell us about your first novel, VELVET.

Velvet is set against a backdrop of decadence, privilege, and intrigue. Virago, the royal tailor, makes a discovery that will test the bonds […]

Xavier Axelson returns with EARTHLY CONCERNS

Good to see you again, Xavier!

Glad to be here!

You’ve been a busy fella.  Can you share what you’ve been up to since you visited last?

Trouble, anarchy, and villainy.  Wait is that what I’ve been up to or the title of my autobiography?  I’ve just been writing, writing and oh yeah, writing!

Willing to bet that suits […]

Xavier Axelson’s Interview

Thanks so much for visiting today Xavier.  You’ve blogged with us before but this is our first chat. I know you’re quite the busy fella too with your column, writing etc…

Please tell us a bit about yourself.  From what I’ve read you’ve led/lead a pretty interesting life in various places.

It’s funny, I’ve been looking back […]

Birthday Month By Xavier Axelson

I’ve decided not to age past 35.  This will be the last year I acknowledge age as a physical construct.  From here on out it is a myth, a generalization, a conclusion drawn and believed by other people.  It’s not that I’m afraid of ageing.  I just decided age stopped mattering.  If people can say […]

Xavier Axelson wraps up the 6 senses

I believe in the power of the sensual world.  My name is Xavier and I am sensualist.  I have written extensively now on the power of the six senses and the journey has been enlightening, tantalizing, and even a little scary.  I was thinking about what I would write this week about the senses. I […]

Xavier Axelson and the 6th Sense

Do you believe in ghosts?  I do.  The 6th sense is probably the most; no, I’m sure it is indeed the most elusive of all our senses.  Yet, can anyone really deny that it exists?  I believe it is a combination of instinct, intuition and maybe a little psychic-ness all mixed into one.  I could […]

More with Xavier


I hope that you have come back for “more” …I am continuing my exploration of the senses here at Manic Readers and am having so much fun and hope you are too!

Sight to me is not only a physical ability but also a psychological one.  We judge with sight, interpret with sight and often save […]


I am featuring the 5 senses (and maybe even the elusive 6th sense) this month on my column and I am thrilled and hope my readers will be too by what and who I have uncovered to discuss each of these gifts that many of us take for granted.  In honor of the senses, […]
