It took thirty years for Alicia to accept her calling as a writer of "unusual stories." Always writing edgy tales that pushed the envelope. She learned to hide her violent, controversial, heart-pumping, horrific and tragically romantic stories from family and friends.
Alicia writes for both new adults and adults with her brand of multicultural superheroes, dark fantasy, paranormal, and horror. Her stories always include strong women heroines who fight back, sometimes to the death.
Alicia's influences include Octavia Butler, LA Banks, Faith Hunter, Patricia Briggs and Laurell K Hamilton.
Alicia is an activist in the movement towards diversifying Science fiction and Fantasy (#diversityinSFF). She created the first "State of Black Science Fiction 2012" blog tour, is an active member in the State of Black Science Fiction FaceBook group and has a Pinterest account she actively curates topics related to Black Warrior Women, Black Science Fiction, Black Speculative fiction and more.
Alicia is a native Detroiter who currently resides in metro Atlanta. Alicia recently lost her beloved son who served as a NAVY Officer. His memory keeps her pushing forward. She currently works as a full-time writer and enjoys spending time with her husband.
She's working on a new superhero series and looks forward to releasing the series soon. Her adult series mixes African-American women's fiction with dark fantasy. Check out the African Elemental series. Sign-up on www.aliciamccalla.com for free downloads, e-updates, sneak peeks, and coupons.
