“One month before my fifth birthday, my mother began teaching me to read and write, and school at home became a wonderful thing.” The engaging story of the Swann family’s experiences with homeschooling as told by the oldest daughter, Alexandra. At the age of fifteen she became the youngest student ever to graduate from Brigham Young University in its 111-year history. In this poignant narrative originally published in 1989 when she was eighteen, Alexandra recounts her experiences as the oldest in a family of ten children, all of whom were earning their educations at a highly-accelerated pace. With warmth, humor and affection, Alexandra draws the reader into the Swann household and shares a story of love, friendship and faith that overcomes obstacles. This twentieth anniversary edition of "No Regrets"—republished in early 2010—contains an updated foreword by the author.

In 1986, Alexandra Swann graduated at fifteen years of age with a bachelor's degree in liberal arts from Brigham Young University and a GPA of 3.85. The following year, when she was sixteen, she received a Master's Degree in History from California State University. After graduation, she taught history and English as a second language for four years at El Paso Community College. In 1989, her book, No Regrets: How Homeschooling Earned me a Master's Degree at Age Sixteen, was published, in which she details her experiences with homeschooling. In 1993, the Swann Family was featured in the CBS Television Series, How'd They Do That?. They were the subject of articles in The National Enquirer and Woman's World, and they were featured on Paul Harvey's radio broadcast.
For fifteen years, from 1998-2013, Alexandra was self-employed in the financial services industry in El Paso, Texas. As a small business owner who was active in the community and on various civic boards, she learned first-hand the challenges that excessive regulations create for small businesses. In 2012 she received the SBA's Regional Minority Small Business Champion of the Year award.
In 2010, Alexandra and her mother incorporated Frontier 2000 Media Group to produce clean, wholesome, inspirational entertainment for families. She re-released No Regrets with a new foreword to the twentieth anniversary edition of the book updating readers on what her family is doing today. She is also co-author of The Fourth Kingdom, and The Twelfth Juror, published in 2010, The Chosen, published in 2012 and The Force published in 2013. The Fourth Kingdom was selected as one of four finalists in the Christianity Today 2011 Christian Fiction Book Awards.
