Alisha Sevigny is an award-winning children’s book author and literary consultant for those seeking assistance in writing and publishing their novels. She holds a degree in Professional Writing from the University of Victoria and is a film school graduate, former literary agent, and freelance editor.
Alisha has always been passionate about Ancient Civilizations. Her award-winning middle-grade adventure series, SECRETS OF THE SANDS, launched with THE LOST SCROLL OF THE PHYSICIAN, followed by THE DESERT PRINCE and THE ORACLE OF AVARIS.
Born and raised in Kitimat, British Columbia, Alisha has a strong connection to the environment and conservationist spirit. On a trip to Panama, she was inspired to write her first Young Adult novel, KISSING FROGS, a modern retelling of THE FROG Prince fairytale, with an eco twist. Her second YA contemporary, SUMMER CONSTELLATIONS, is about a young woman fighting to save her family campground while trying not to fall in love. The book was acquired by Kate Egan, editor of The Hunger Games, and was a CCBC Best Books for Teens pick and a finalist for NERFA* in the Young Adult category for all of North America.
Alisha is available to speak virtually at schools, writer groups, book clubs, and to anyone else interested in reading, writing, and publishing. She also leads 12-Week Writer Workshops with So You Want to Write, helping people to complete and publish their work!
