Greetings from the San Francisco Bay Area! My name is Alythia Brown, and I’m a fantasy author, represented by BookEnds, LLC.
In 2005, in addition to becoming a new mom, I embarked on a journey to publish my work and land a literary agent. Since then, I have published with Wyvern Publications and Crescent Moon Press and signed with literary agent Moe Ferrara of BookEnds, LLC.
I view everything as an opportunity for growth. Working with two small presses, which have both gone under since, I gained more than I could have ever hoped for and what I believe was a huge foot in the door to help me land representation.
I met the lovely Moe during a writing contest and haven’t looked back. She is an amazing mentor and cheerleader for my work, and signing with her was a dream come true. I can’t even begin to list the amazing people in the writing community who have supported me along the way, because there have been many. But I’m forever grateful to you all!
In another realm of my writing life, I’m also a newspaper journalist and copy editor, which means I am admittedly torn when it comes to the Oxford comma and will burst into random bouts of laughter when editing the cop logs on deadline day. Let’s just say, in my neck of the woods, a dead duck and a stolen box of cereal make the news. And it’s glorious.
Ultimately, I love helping other writers. If you’re anything like I was before signing with Moe, chances are you can’t get enough information about literary agents and publishing. You might also think you’ll never land an agent. If that’s you, drop me a line or post a comment. But always, stay tuned!
