Hi! I’m Aléna. I am a freelance writer and editor. I hold a Bachelor’s Degree in English, with an emphasis in Creative Writing. I started writing stories when I was three years old. I told them to my mom and she wrote them down. I have been editing professionally since 2015. I currently live in North Idaho with my husband, four children, two grandchildren, my mom, three dogs, four cats, and a varying number of chickens. When I am not at the gym, hiking, gardening, or spending time with family and friends, I am reading and writing. I also like to crochet and spin yarn for some downtime. Some of my favorite authors include Ann McCaffrey, Elizabeth Cunningham, Elizabeth Gilbert, and Erin Morgenstern.
I’m so happy you’ve found your way to my author site, where I will share with you my writings and services. Here you can get updates on what I’m working on, where to find my work, and learn all about me. I typically write urban fantasy, creative nonfiction, women’s fiction, poetry, and articles about health and family. I am also a freelance editor of all genres. I hope to keep you informed and entertained. So grab a cup of coffee, tea, or your favorite snack and take a look around.
Once a month, I send out a newsletter with news, updates, popular blog posts, sales, and anything else I think might interest my readers.
