About this author

Originally from Washington, D.C., and born there in the winter after Watergate to a Masterpiece Theater obsessed mother and Archie Bunker-obsessed father, Alice’s past educational and work experience is unusually varied, and it now feeds her work as a poet, as well as an editor, coach and marketing consultant for writers. After The Steaming Stops is her most recent collection of poetry; previous collections are Right Lane Ends, and Unfinished Projects. She teaches classes and writing workshops to aspiring authors of nearly all ages (from 9 to 90), both in person and online. Alice lives in Raleigh with her husband, two children and three parakeets: Woodbird, Birdstein and Perry. Visit her website today at

C.J. Hi Alice,

Good to meet you. I'm looking forward to trading recommendations for great thrillers.

I just received the cover art for my next book and it looks fantastic. A Demon Awaits will be ready for press in a few weeks!
