I’m Alicia Rades, a writer from central Wisconsin. I’m mostly a freelance blogger, but when inspiration strikes, I’m also an author.
To date, I have authored over a half dozen novels. My books feature modern-day teens with a hint of magic!
Fire in Frost is my debut novel, which released in the beginning of 2015. It is a B.R.A.G. Medallion award-winner and was named one of the top 50 indie books to read in 2015 by Readfree.ly. It was also awarded an Honorable Mention in the Readers’ Favorite 2016 International Book Award Contest (YA Paranormal category). Desire in Frost also made ReadFree.ly’s 2016 list of 50 indie books worth reading. I hit the USA Today Bestseller list in May, 2017 with the Spellbound box set.
I’m a regular participant in National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo), which is a challenge each November to write the first draft of a 50,000-word fiction book in a single month. My previous NaNoWriMo projects (all of which I completed the challenge with) include Fire in Frost, Desire in Frost, Distant Dreams, and my current work in progress, Deep Waters.
In my free time, you can find me…well…writing.
