Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, Alys went to New York University. After spending her first two years studying at Playwright’s Horizons Theatre School in Tisch, she finished the rest of her education at NYU’s London campus, where she studied playwriting under the Writers’ Guild of Great Britain. After that, Alys followed her love of movies and pursued her Masters’ in Film Studies at King’s College London, where she's currently writing my thesis on contemporary Hollywood depictions of post-Katrina New Orleans. Alys currently lives in London, but she'll always be a southern girl at heart!
Alys has two upcoming releases, THE CHRISTMAS COMPANY (Hallmark Publishing), and TEA AND A COWBOY (The Wild Rose Press).
