Alexis Daria is a romance writer, artist, and native New Yorker. She has a BFA in Computer Arts, but her most fulfilling job was as a group facilitator for a women’s empowerment community, where she coached other women in following their creative dreams. Now, when she isn’t helping elementary school kids craft essays or learn long division, she writes contemporary and paranormal romance.
On Sunday evenings, Alexis co-hosts #RWchat, a weekly Twitter chat for romance writers. She serves as PRO Liaison for the New York City chapter of RWA, and Municipal Liaison for the NYC region of National Novel Writing Month. She’s had articles in Woman’s Day for Latinas (print) and on DIY MFA and Swoon Says.
TAKE THE LEAD, Alexis’ Dancing with the Stars-inspired contemporary romance, is a 2017 Golden Heart finalist, NOLA Stars’ 2016 Suzannah Contest grand prize winner, Chicago-North RWA’s 2017 Fire & Ice Contest winner, and North Texas RWA’s 2017 Great Expectations Contest winner. Her historical romance, THE ART OF LOVING A DUKE, is also a 2017 Fire & Ice winner, and her light paranormal, VENUS RISING, is a 2017 Golden Rose finalist.
TAKE THE LEAD will be published by SMP Swerve in Fall 2017, followed closely by the sequel, DANCE WITH ME. Alexis is represented by Sarah E. Younger from Nancy Yost Literary Agency.
