About the Author
My name is Alyssa Louttit. I write Young Adult fantasy books aimed at older teenagers and the young at heart. I'm twenty-four years old and fell in love with literature at a very, very young age. I grew up having a very difficult time unable to really connect with my peers and often found my mind wandering a fantasy world. When I entered high school I still had these troubles and decided to write down those wanderings and that became my first published work a novella called From the Ashes. I also wrote a sequel to called Flight of Darkness. I find YA to be a nice comforting genre to write in, and I like to think I'm doing something with it that is sorely underrepresented. Being both Asexual and Aromantic I take depictions of LGBTQIA characters very seriously and wish there were more of them in the wilds of school libraries.
You can find me making mostly joke tweets about the voices in my head at Alyssa_Louttit on twitter.
