Alyssa Rose was quite the adventurer on paper! All the dazzling quests, dragons, and magical beings entertained and captivated her. Her love of books was her own personal escape from the realities of the world around her. One remarkable teacher gave her the courage to try the impossible—write her own stories! With a notebook and her handy pen, she started crafting magical tales, hoping to share them with the world.

Hello friends! Alyssa Rose is an author of Young Adult and Upper Middle-Grade books. Binding Fate (The Fates Align Duology) Book 1 is my only published work, currently. Please see “Purchase the Book” for more information. I write fantasy books, and as you might guess, I LOVE to read fantasy books too. I’ve always read multiple books simultaneously since reading one at a time wasn’t fast-paced enough for my voracious mind. My writing started when I was nine years old—inspired by my love of books. An outstanding teacher inspired my early writing, and I’ve been crafting fantasy worlds ever since! You can find some of my works in progress in the “Upcoming Books” section. Other things I do in my spare time are knit and spend time with my husband, daughter, son, and fur babies. Teaching is another passion of mine, where I teach not only my content but I strive to encourage their writing. That is my way of letting the writing bug come full circle!
There are so many marvelous stories that have shaped me over the years. Some of my favorites are JK Rowling’s Harry Potter Series and Joseph Delaney’s The Last Apprentice Series, Angie Sage’s Septimus Heap series, A Series of Unfortunate Events by Lemony Snicket, The Selection Series by Kiera Cass, Soul Render by T.L. Branson, The Dragon Orb by Mike Shelton, and Dragon School Series by Sarah K.L. Wilson. These are just some of the many many books and their authors that I’ve loved!
