Alisha has always had a knack for writing and rhyme. By the age of 10 she had her first work published after having won a local writing competition. She hasn’t stoped creating since.
Alisha is originally from New York State and currently lives in Guatemala with her spouse and son. She is passionate about being a mother and living a life of adventure. She also likes cooking and eating delicious food, spending time in nature, exploring new places with her family and learning new things. She is a homeschool mom and is studying and implementing the Montessori method at home where she privately educates her family.
She attributes her capacity for writing to her father who always encouraged her to read and write. One of her most cherished possessions is a stunning book collection of over 200 leather-bound classics gifted to her by her father when she was a child. Amongst them, one of her all time favorites, Lewis Carols “Alice in Wonderland” spoke to her curious nature and stirred her imagination. “When I used to read fairy tales, I fancied that kind of thing never happened, and now here I am in the middle of one!” Alisha is the Author and illustrator of the best selling book “Trevor the mouse and his unexpected house” and has a second book of the same series set to be released this November.
