Born in Cleveland, Ohio, Aleta Overton grew up in its' suburbs before moving back to the city in her early teens. At a young age she began writing in order to practice and share her stories with friends.
Aleta first discovered Sci-fi and Fantasy while rummaging through her granddad's favorite VHS tapes. Her mother swears that at five, Aleta would watch Dune for hours on end! In her teens she began writing fantasy after reading J.K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, which remains today one of her favorites.
While a Creative Writing major at Cleveland School of the Arts, Aleta continued expanding her talents in storytelling. Her one act play Between Boyz was featured in the New Play Festival at the Cleveland Playhouse.
Currently she is a student at Fullsail University majoring in Creative Writing for Entertainment. Aleta's current projects include a novel, pilot script, and a series of short-stories.
