"There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside of you," Maya Angelou, I Know Why The Caged Bird Sings. ALYSSIA MARIE WAS ALWAYS AN AVID READER. Reading was her passion; it wasn’t until she was sixteen when the idea of being a professional author became a dream of hers (essentially tossing her dreams of being a cowgirl away). After reading the popular novel, Twilight, her writing obsession began with the first draft of Ivory, originally titled "Ivory’s Guardian Named Ebony." Admittedly, it sucked.
Seven years later, and many, many version of Ivory, Alyssia Marie is now months away from self-publishing her first novel.
Alyssia Marie currently lives in Nebraska, with her family.
