Who Is Alikay and Is That Even a Real Name?

Greetings and salutations fellow internet browser.

My name is Alikay. That is my first name. It is one word. Please, for the love of carbs, do not call me Ali. That is not my name.

I’m an Editor by day and a novelist by any other time.  What do I write? So kind of you to ask (I assume). I write young adult novels about “unlikeable” girls who sometimes kill people. It’s a party! I’m represented by Christa Heschke. She’s pretty cool I guess.

Um, let’s see, other things about me. I live in Queens. It keeps me glutenful. But I’m from California and firmly believe it is the promised land. I work in magazines. Lord of the Rings is my love language. Taco Bell gives me life. Etc.

Want to know more about me? Subscribe to my Monday Motivation newsletter. You can also stalk me on Twitter (@alikaywould), Instagram (@alikaywould) and Facebook (@alikaywoodwords). I hope to see you in all of these digital places and maybe even in the real world someday! Until then, here is a a Lord of the Rings GIF because I wasn’t kidding about the love language:
