Get to know Alice....


When did you start writing? 

I’ve been writing on and off since I was a kid, but I’ve gotten more intentional about it in the past few years. Attending Viable Paradise in 2018 really helped me to take myself more seriously as a writer. 


When and where and what did you first get published.?

My flash fiction “The Garden” won second place in the "Stories of the Nature of Cities” contest and was published in the corresponding anthology. Since then my work has appeared in Asimov’s and Little Blue Marble. 


Why do you write science fiction and/or fantasy? 

I love the freedom that speculative fiction gives you. It’s also a great medium for exploring big questions and ideas.
