Alyssa Day is the pen name (and dark and tortured alter ego) of RITA award-winning author Alesia Holliday. ATLANTIS RISING was the first of Alyssa's Warriors of Poseidon novels for Berkley Publishing, and was featured on the cover of the March, 2007, issue of Romantic Times BOOKClub magazine! All of the Warriors of Poseidon novels have rocked the bestseller lists, hitting the Waldenbooks, Borders, Barnes and Noble, Bookscan, and the prestigious USA Today bestseller lists! In addition, the anthology Shifter, with Alyssa’s novella Shifter’s Lady, spent three weeks on the New York Times bestseller list, and both Atlantis Unleashed and Atlantis Unmasked were New York Times bestsellers!
Alyssa has long been an avid fan of all things Atlantis, supernatural, and in any way pertaining to lost civilizations. When she was six, she told her mother that she would discover Atlantis one day—and now she has! When she’s not playing in her paranormal worlds, she’s the mom to two brilliant children, the wrangler to a herd of rescue pugs, and the wife of a Navy Fly Guy, who may be flying over an ocean near you in his mighty P 3 Orion at this very minute.
And a personal note from Alyssa:
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my site and read this far. I'm having the best time of my life writing stories for people to read and enjoy. It took me four years of college, three years of law school, and several years of working in the "real world" to realize that the characters and worlds in my head would always be more fascinating to me than working for somebody else and pushing papers around a desk.
I'm thrilled to finally have the chance to write about my sexy hot alpha male warriors and the women who tame them. Of course, it's also great to have a defensible reason to continue to cart my hundreds of research books on ancient civilizations with me as I move from state to state with my own personal hero, who flies for the U.S. Navy (and refuses, no matter how often I ask, to tell me how deep submarines actually can dive - "that's classified, honey"). It may take me a few weeks, especially when the deadline is breathing its hot and slightly smelly breath down my neck, but I personally answer every email I receive. I love hearing from readers - you're the reason I do what I do.
