I decided to write books about ten minutes before graduating law school at Duke. I'm now an Atlanta attorney, but I moonlight as an author, electronics junkie, and secret superhero. With a degree in computer science from Princeton, another from UNC, and an MFA in writing popular fiction, I love all things high-tech and unreal. I write science fiction and fantasy for young adults.

In a previous life, I wrote under the name Alicia Wright Brewster.

No More Blogging, But Get Your Updates Here

I’ve pretty much given up on blogging. I think you and I would both prefer that I spend my writing time writing stories instead of blogs.


I think the best use of these posts going forward is for updates. I’ll post about cover reveals, pre-orders, releases, sales, and other news of that nature. If you’d rather hear from me more often though, subscribe to my newsletter or follow me on Facebook,

message 28: by Penny

Penny Hi Alicia. You make a good point, it isn't the best magical system, but was a series I rather enjoyed. But your comment is exactly why I'm adding friends on goodreads - for opinions and ideas that haven't occurred to me that will improve my reading experience by either introducing me to new books or helping focus my critical eye. Thanks! :)

Aleeeeeza hi! haha yes i always become completely moronic when someone asks me something about myself. *shrugs* hopefully while we we book-nerd it down up here you'll find out yourself! :)

message 24: by Katy

Katy Hey! Yeah, I thought we were already friends here, too ... Hrmph. OH, well, now we're set :-)

message 23: by Rachael

Rachael I'm glad you're a fan of unicorns c: By the way, I saw that earlier you commented on my "yum-yums" shelf. The story behind that is I used to have a shelf called "favorites", but it got too big, so I created another shelf called "favorites". Obviously 2 shelves can't have the same name, so I asked my cousin what is another word for "favorites" and she said "yum-yums" c: I'm kind of weird but it's okay :D

& Thanks for accepting my request!

Just wanted to say that.

Tammy Yay, you added me. Thanks for the friendship!

Alisha Sci-Fi/Fantasy Alicias/Alishas, unite!

I totally agree with you re: cliffhangers. There are a few that are done well...but far too often, they're blatant "hooks" to make readers invest in the next book...and the next...and the next. :p

Looking forward to chatting books with you (and scooping some ideas for future picks from your "read" shelf ^_^)!!
