About this author

*Note to readers: I'm slowly trying to add to the long list of books I have read, books I am reading, books I want to read, and books I loved reading. I only add books I loved, hence all my ratings are 5 stars!



Alyson Noël is the #1 New York Times best selling, award-winning, author of 21 novels, including: FAKING 19, ART GEEKS AND PROM QUEENS, LAGUNA COVE, FLY ME TO THE MOON, KISS & BLOG, SAVING ZOË, CRUEL SUMMER, FOREVER SUMMER (a LAGUNA COVE/CRUEL SUMMER 2-in-1), KEEPING SECRETS (a SAVING ZOË/FAKING 19 2-in-1), the IMMORTALS series: EVERMORE, BLUE MOON, SHADOWLAND, DARK FLAME, NIGHT STAR, EVERLASTING, the IMMORTALS spin-off, RILEY BLOOM series: RADIANCE, SHIMMER, DREAMLAND, WHISPER, THE SOUL SEEKERS series: FATED, ECHO, MYSTIC, HORIZO...more



As a huge fan of both the TED and TEDx talks, I was enormously honored when I was asked to give one last April. I had exactly two months to come up with a talk and then memorize it. This is the result, given at Chapman University on June 18, 2014.

I hope you enjoy it!

xoxo

Alyson

Jen Hi Alyson! I am on book 3 of the Immortals series. I am kept in suspense every book so far. I love the fact that you have the series of Riley Bloom and Soul Seekers, and have joined them to where they all seem to come together. That is just awesome. I am waiting to see what is next. I am enjoying your books. Keep up the great work.


Reyna (Glamour Glory) Hello Alyson, I am a huge fan of your books and I would love to review your book Fated on my blog if that is something you might be interested in. Thank you for adding me as a friend. Many blessings to you in 2013!

Gina (Fantasia Books) Hi Alyson!!

Just wanted to say that i really liked evermore and LOVED Radiance. Riley is such a great character and i loved the idea of the book! I've completed my first novel and am currently writing the second. But i find it difficult. The editing process is really hard too but i do plan on publishing, hopefully? Do you have any tips for me??
