About Alyssa

Award winning author Alyssa Drake has been creating stories since she could read, preferring to construct her own bedtime tales instead of reading the titles in her bookshelves. Enraptured with all types of writing, Alyssa has tried her hand at short stories, collaborations and poetry.  However, her first love has always been books.  She thoroughly enjoys strong heroines and often laughs aloud when visualizing conversations between her characters.


Alyssa graduated from the University of the Pacific, with a B.S. in business and a concentration in French literature.  Currently she resides in Northern California with her blended family, where she works full-time at a chocolate factory.

She believes everyone is motivated by love of someone or something.  One of her favorite diversions is fabricating stories about strangers surrounding her in her mobile author cave (public transportation).  Alyssa can often be found madly scribbling notes on a train or daydreaming out the window as the scenery whips past.


A Perfect Plan, Alyssa's debut novel, won Obsessed by Book's 2016 Indie Award for Best Historical Read. 

Alyssa has expanded into Paranormal Romance/Urban Fantasy.  If you enjoy that genre, please check out her upcoming anthology sets, featuring The Frog's Prince and Hexing Hearts.  All new release information is highlighted in the "Coming Soon" section.
