Alissa is the author of the YA novels Unnamed Roads, Popular, Ferocity Summer and Shallow Pond. She lives in Pennsylvania and when she's not busy writing or selling stuff on the internet she's probably hanging out with her boyfriend Ron or walking her dog Jack. She shares her writing adventures on her weekly Awkward Author vlog and podcast. Find out more and get a free ebook at alissagrosso.com.

In my latest dispatch from the Awkward Author front I share my disappointing author income report from June and some thoughts on writing during stressful times, as I deal with a stressful situation on the homefront.



Awkward Author is also available as a podcast on iTunes.

Toni Morrison
“If there's a book that you want to read, but it hasn't been written yet, then you must write it.”
Toni Morrison

Connie Willis
“Actually, writers have no business writing about their own works. They either wax conceited, saying things like: 'My brilliance is possibly most apparent in my dazzling short story, "The Cookiepants Hypotenuse."' Or else they get unbearably cutesy: 'My cat Ootsywootums has given me all my best ideas, hasn't oo, squeezums?”
Connie Willis, The Winds of Marble Arch and Other Stories

Robert Fulghum
“We’re all a little weird. And life is a little weird. And when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall into mutually satisfying weirdness—and call it love—true love.”
Robert Fulghum, True Love

Madeleine L'Engle
“You have to write the book that wants to be written. And if the book will be too difficult for grown-ups, then you write it for children.”
Madeleine L'Engle

Mark Twain
“Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to reform (or pause and reflect).”
Mark Twain
