Alanna lives on a small patch of untamable land in southwestern Ontario, with her three children, husband, and an over-weight cat. Alanna has been saturated in classic Canadian fiction since she was a young child and has been passionate about words for nearly as long, stubbornly holding to the dream of someday, spinning her own tales. Now, when evening falls, she tucks herself into her self-made study and writes stories about people: some real, some who just take up space in her head.

Liv Archer has started a new website where she is celebrating indie writers by purchasing and reviewing their books, (The Church in the Wildwood was her third indie review) as well as interviewing authors with thoughtfully crafted, spoiler-free questions.

The Ghost of Iris Carver by Alanna Rusnak
"Ok, I adored this book! I really had no idea what it was about so it caught me a bit by surprise but in such a great way! Iris is so endearing in this book, I loved her in the first book but she redeems so many failures in this one.

"This was a hard read. There’s not much of this book that I enjoyed reading. It’s about incredible difficult times within the confines of man-made religion that unfortunately tends to reflect real life rather than remaining on the page.

However, it..." Read more of this review »

“He is a blind man and I am his book of braille. His breath against my collarbone raises goosebumps on my arm as I let him read my story.”
Alanna Rusnak, Kissing Johnny

“Joy. In every breath. In every moment. In every turn of the blossom to face the sun. In every stream of juice that trails my chin from fruit so sweet. In Him. In the coolness of the evening when He walks beside us and His laughter lifts across the river as He delights in our wonder over this place He has given us. In silence. In starlight. In shouting an anthem of gladness that shakes the earth and hails birds into flight.”
Alanna Rusnak, Eve Undone

“We're all just wandering around with our fingers crossed, hoping we'll meet someone who will make our lostness a little less lonely.”
Alanna Rusnak, The Church in the Wildwood

“People swindle themselves out of Salvation with great regularity.”
Anne Rice, Angel Time

“We're all just wandering around with our fingers crossed, hoping we'll meet someone who will make our lostness a little less lonely.”
Alanna Rusnak, The Church in the Wildwood

“So this, I believe, is the central question upon which all creative living hinges: Do you have the courage to bring forth the treasures that are hidden within you?”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

“The universe buries strange jewels deep within us all, and then stands back to see if we can find them.”
Elizabeth Gilbert, Big Magic: Creative Living Beyond Fear

“Ah, what broken creatures we are, and how we endure.”
Anne Rice, Of Love and Evil
