Scraps: The Gorgon’s Head

Scraps: The Gorgon’s Head

The stone man stares at me, and I know he wants me to be like him. He wants me to be stone, too. His eyes don’t frighten me, though. They are confused eyes. They are eyes that don’t understand flesh. I’m better than him: I understand stone.

(Stumbled upon this in my notes from the Roman Baths in Bath, UK, and I thought I’d share.)

Alyssa was born in small town Milton, Florida, but life as a roving military kid soon mellowed her (unintelligibly strong) Southern accent. Wanderlust is in her blood, and she’s always waiting for the wind to change. Stories remain her constant. Alyssa received her bachelor’s in English/Creative Writing from Berry College and her master's in Creative Writing for Young People from Bath Spa University. Alyssa is represented by Amber Caraveo at Skylark Literary. Her debut The Eleventh Trade – "a powerful story of love, loss, friendship and hope, centered around Sami, a young refugee from Afghanistan now building a new life with his grandfather in Boston" – will be published Fall 2018 by Macmillan (U.S.) and HotKey (U.K.).
