Alisha Sevigny is an author of Young Adult, Middle Grade and Children’s Books and is a literary consultant for those seeking assistance in writing and publishing their novel. She holds a degree in Professional Writing and Sociology from the University of Victoria, is a film school graduate, former literary agent and yoga teacher. On a trip to Panama she fell in love with the country, culture, and their national emblem, the Golden Frog and was inspired to write her first Young Adult novel, KISSING FROGS, a contemporary retelling of THE FROG Prince fairytale with an environmental twist.
Her second book, SUMMER CONSTELLATIONS is about a young woman fighting to save her family campground while trying not to fall in love and came out with KCP Loft (and Kate Egan, editor of The Hunger Games!) in 2018. SUMMER CONSTELLATIONS was a CCBC Best Books for Teens pick and a North American finalist for NERFA* in the Young Adult category. (*National Excellence in Romance Fiction Award)
Born and raised in Kitimat, British Columbia, Alisha has always had a strong connection to the environment and conservationist spirit.
Alisha has also always been passionate about Ancient Civilizations and her new middle-grade series SECRETS OF THE SANDS launched in 2020 with THE LOST SCROLL OF THE PHYSICIAN (CCBC’s Best Books for Kids 2020) and is followed by THE DESERT PRINCE. This is a thrilling series for any lover of Ancient Egypt, mystery and adventure, featuring REAL modern-day artifacts. Readers young and old will delight in this page-turning action novel that will make them feel like they stepped back in time.
Alisha is available for speaking virtually at schools, writer groups and to anyone else who loves reading, writing and learning more about publishing!
