Alicia McCalla

Futuristic, Fantasy and Paranormal Writer

Breaking Free

After thirty years, Alicia McCalla accepted her calling as a writer of strong Black women heroines who fight back, sometimes to the death. Alicia’s stories are edgy, violent, and controversial with heart-pumping action and her protagonists are forced to make difficult choices. 

Alicia began writing and self-publishing professionally in 2012. In the beginning, she wrote part-time while she worked full-time as a School Media Specialist. Tragedy struck and her only child, an officer in the US Navy was lost at sea. This single event changed everything. With the overwhelming intensity of her grief brain, she had to re-learn how to live fully while honoring her son’s legacy (he was one of her largest supporters and champions. He even produced a theme song for her work). She often takes the time to acknowledge her grief journey in her blog posts.

Now, Alicia is a full-time writer & merchandiser sharing stories and products of courageous, brave and strong Black women warriors.  She enjoys writing Sistas with Skills, Swords & Superpowers. Alicia is Black Girl Nerd and regularly Cosplays strong female superheroes, warriors and maybe even a fairy.

Alicia's influences include Octavia Butler, LA Banks, Faith Hunter, and Patricia Briggs.
