A photo of me in the Smith Tower, wearing a blue scarf.I’m a writer based in Seattle, where I live with my little family. I like to write fiction and nonfiction, especially fun writing guides. I am currently working on a novel about a missing woman. You can read some things I’ve written here and see my teaching portfolio here. I have my MFA from the University of New Hampshire.

If you’d like to keep up with my writing and get show notes for Scratch Paper Podcast, please sign up here .


  1. Hi Alicia, I’m currently studying – and loving – your DIY Guide to Chick Lit on my kindle but want to have it in print. I notice it is only available digitally, but is it possible to buy it as a PDF so I can print it out? Many thanks for any help.
