Alicia Wright Brewster

Goodreads Author





Member Since
December 2010


I’ve been writing novels since 2007, and in 2016, I obtained a Master of Fine Arts in writing popular fiction. A practicing patent attorney, I also have a Juris Doctor and a Master of Science in computer science. I am an unabashed tech enthusiast and super geek, and my love of innovation fuels my writing.

When I’m not writing or lawyering, you can find me gawking at costumes at fantasy and science-fiction conventions or taking notes in the back of convention panels. Although each of my books is a fantasy world, my personal fantasy is to write for you full time.

I expect to publish a few new books in 2019, and you’ll be able to find that work under the name Alicia Ellis. My older work is under the name Alicia Wright Brewster.

message 29: 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 25: by Katy

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

message 24: 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.

message 5: by Tammy

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 ^_^)!!
