Alyssa Villaire is a fantasy writer living in Los Angeles. Even though she’s based on the West Coast, most of her stories harken back to where she grew up—the woods of rural Indiana, the rolling hills of Wisconsin, and the icy shores of Lake Huron. When she’s not writing, Alyssa is probably watching horror movies, eating spicy food with her boyfriend, or waiting in a virtual Ticketmaster line.

Alyssa is represented by Peter Knapp at Park & Fine Literary and Media.
