Welcome to the website for young adult science fiction &  fantasy author, Alice Janell.

If you just want to chat, find me on Facebook or Twitter.



2015 was definitely not the year of writing for me. Being pregnant, having a baby 2mos early, spending 5 weeks in the NICU with him and then moving to another state just a few days after he was released from the hospital has definitely taken its toll on me.

But we are fine and he is healthy and Cupcake is adoring being a big sister. Now that we are settled into our new house, my current focus is my my family and my non-writing work that brings in our second income. You can, however, find me on Facebook, Twitter or at my crafting & mommy blog, Magical Mommy.

I am hoping to participate in NaNoWriMo, but only time will tell if that’s in the cards for me. The closest “official” region to me is over an hour away, which is a bit discouraging, but perhaps I can find a group of people here that NaNo. Again, we’ll see.

For sure in 2016 I will be carving out time in my daily schedule for serious writing. The little Monster will be a little older and that should make it a little easier for me to dedicate a little more time toward my writing.

I have some very big, lofty goals for 2016, including a serial about a girl who’s done her best to avoid all things supernatural until she finds out that controls a large, important piece of that world — there’s no avoiding destiny.

So, until 2016…
