TODAY’S BLACK SPECULATIVE FICTION MONTH SPOTLIGHT IS ALICIA MCCALLA!
It took thirty years for Alicia McCalla to accept her calling as a writer of “unusual stories.” Always writing edgy tales that pushed the envelope. She learned to hide her violent, heart-pumping,and tragically romantic stories from family and friends.
It wasn’t until she joined RWA that she began to share her stories openly and take the plunge. Alicia writes for both new adults and adults with her brand of multicultural urban fantasy, paranormal, romance, and horror. Her stories always include strong women heroines who fight back, sometimes to the death.
Alicia is a native of Detroit who currently resides in metro Atlanta. She works as a media specialist or school librarian in a local school district. Alicia enjoys spending time with her husband and son.
Her first book for new adults, Breaking Free, is available in print or for immediate download. She has an adult series that mixes African-American women’s fiction with dark urban fantasy. Check out the African Elemental series. Sign-up on www.aliciamccalla.com for e-updates, sneak peeks, and coupons.
