“Her fear lifts out of her skin, a sultry pink cloud that trails behind her, leaving stains on everything she touches. It teases my nose and sets a fire under my brain, and I can feel every muscle in my body quivering with anticipation.

A lifelong lover of literature, Alyssa Cooper was first published at the age of eighteen. Her passion for the written word started early, and as a child she would carry her mother’s novels as part of her wardrobe. She has dedicated her life to developing her voice and pushing the limits of her craft. She is the author of three traditionally published books, Salvation, Benjamin, and Cold Breath of Life. The Motel Room and Whispering Peak are her first foray into independent publishing. She currently resides in Belleville, Ontario, where she lives with her typewriters and a personal library.
