Alana is a writer currently residing in New Orleans, Louisiana with her husband, Chris, two cats, Nymeria and Sajah, two dogs, Noke and Haka, a snake, Dovah, and four chickens, Lacey, Heihei, Delly, and Cali. She loves to read, write, cook, exercise, get outdoors, and play video games (she even streams sometimes!). Her favorite things to read and write are fantasy and sci-fi, but she enjoys most genres.
She has been published in Manhattan Magazine for her poetry, a literary magazine run by Manhattan College, and hopes to find that publishing road once more.
She is currently querying her YA Fantasy novel. She appreciates all the love and support from friends and family–she couldn’t do it without them!
Besides prioritizing writing, Alana has a full-time job, working remotely from her home office.
