About Alaina:
Alaina lives a stone's throw from the Mississippi River in Missouri. Her first story was published in the local newspaper at age 6. She hasn't stopped writing since.

As the mother of seven children she loved to play video games with her kids. One day it occurred to her to write an adventure that flowed like a video game. She added a touch of romance and Hypnotic Journey was born.

The Fantasy Romance- HJ characters are like a family to Alaina. They are foolish, daring, resourceful and full of passion not only for life but for the friendships they have created in this world and the next.

Alaina's been a Trekkie all her life, so her next series was Science Fiction. The Treborel Series is a paranormal adventure featuring a two best friend's as the hero's fighting to find the women they love and survive the chaos of a continental conflict while being stalked by a psychotic villain determined to destroy them.

Archangel is a pre-apocalyptic series about angels fighting against the rising evil in a desperate attempt to keep humanity alive long enough to reach the end of days.

Royal Duty is a new type of series. Each book is a different genre- Science Fiction, Historical Romance, Fantasy, etc. They all share a central theme of a royal heir struggling against their obligations to the throne.

In the end, Alaina writes about how friendship and love can be the only thing keeping you alive long enough to defeat your demons. You will find Alaina's stories exciting and steamy, but she's not an erotic author. Her characters still fall in love and have sex, its just not that obvious.

You can email Alaina at 11alaina11@gmail.com anytime. She loves to hear from her readers.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
The first story that had an impact was the original copy of Beowulf. It was in my Honors English class, in it's original, albeit translated format. I was mesmerized. The raw creativity, the passion and the idea that some anciet writer managed to pass the story down verbially until someone could scribble it down on parchment was inspiring.
What do you read for pleasure?
Terry Brooks is a favorite author of mine. I love his books and am still making my way through them. Tolkien is also a favorite, I could read those books, over and over again.

Roleplay at its best...sure, it's all fun and games until someone gets their arm cut off. Wouldn't it be cool to suddenly have the battle skills of a seasoned warrior?

Wouldn't it be perfect if the hypnotist in charge of your session was not insanely evil and using you as a weapon in a plot for revenge?

    (no rating)
    I'm not one to read a lot of horror stories but this one I could not put down. I was completely ingrossed in the storyline and could not wait to get to the 'punchline'. The plot was intense and well done. I felt as if I was right there with the boys and wanted to scream at them to run away, run away! Any horror buff will love this story. Well done!

  • Lilith: Screenplay on July 05, 2014

    The biblical references are not quite spot on, but it is an amusing story. Some spelling errors and wrong words used, could use another proof read. The characters were well formed and enjoyable.
