about ALI

Ali Archer is an award-winning author of young adult speculative fiction, a happiness enthusiast, and believer in hope and magic. Her stories are fantastical echoes of real life where bad things happen but so do happy endings. She loves pretty rocks, playing with her Yorkies, and Amazon packages. If there was a subscription box based off her Amazon wish list, she’d be the first to sign up. Ali lives with her heroic, hacker husband, and one of her twin sons, while the other recently flew the coop.
