Alyssa Everett grew up in Florida, where from an early age her favorite books typically had dukes in them. As a teen she worked in an amusement park, doing just about every kind of odd job a person can do, from collecting garbage to captaining an African boat cruise.

She met her husband, a darkly handsome doctor with a wicked sense of humor, at Harvard University. They currently live with their three children and a springer spaniel in small-town Pennsylvania.

But I've discovered that when I run into writer's block, it's usually my subconscious telling me I'm trying to take the story down the wrong track. Either the plot has taken an implausible turn, or (more likely) I've made my hero and heroine do something that's not true to their characters. I try to figure out what that thing is, then go back and tear out everything I've written since that point. It can be painful to cut pages I've already written, but it usually gets me past my writer's block.(less)

I have a feeling Freddie might make a better secondary character in someone else's love story--perhaps Dr. Strickland might meet an intelligent young woman to take Cassandra's place, and at the same time Freddie might take an interest in her eccentric cousin. But if the right plot occurs to me, I could always do it the other way around, with Dr. Strickland as the supporting character while Freddie takes the spotlight. Thanks for asking!(less)

I was thrilled to discover (a few days after the fact) that The Marriage Act made Romance Novels for Feminists’ Best of 2015 list. You can read the entire list (which also features author Rose Lerner, one of my talented critique partners) by clicking here.

"I confess I enjoyed this book very much ! What's not to love about an introverted beta Hero (when done right). The heroine was a ninny at first (but I probably would have acted in the same way under the same circumstances).There is certainly an oi..." Read more of this review »

"I spent six and a half hours on trains and glommed this over the course of about 5 of those hours. Everett is a neat writer. Sounds rather like I’m damning with faint praise, but I’m not. This all felt meticulously planned and plotted. The languag..." Read more of this review »

Ruined by Rumor by Alyssa Everett
"This is a romance that is obviously going for sweet rather than steamy. The courtship of Roxana and Alex is like watching two cute, awkward, clumsy puppies wrestle with each other. They are a couple that I really rooted for because they were both..." Read more of this review »

I was ready to name Alex the reason I like this book. He was awkwardly sweet, painfully shy, kindhearted, honourable and very responsible. He carried so many chips on his shoulders, I was sympathetic towards him. But turned ou..." Read more of this review »

“Later, when they would spend straight hours conversing in the dark, Jane would realize that Henry kissed the way he talked- his entire attention taut, focused, intensely hers.”
Shannon Hale, Austenland

“No doubt she'd thought she was doing him a kindness, urging him to kick up his heels and loosen his too-tight cravat and learn to savor careless pleasures. As though he hadn't heard such urgings before, from every feckless acquaintance made uncomfortable by his example of propriety, or every heedless one who sailed through life never noticing that it was vigilant people, the people standing back from the merriment, who stomped out the fiery raisins dropped by others and kept everything from going up in flames.”
Cecilia Grant, A Christmas Gone Perfectly Wrong
