About Alida

In 2018 I decided to follow my heart  and become a children’s writer. Since then, I have written two middle grade novels in my "Lizzy" series, Until the Ocean Freezes, and its sequel, Hoops on the Moon. I'm finishing my third novel for young readers while completing my MFA degree at St. Francis College. I live in New York City with my husband and a scruffy rescue dog with one eye named Spencer. When I'm not writing kid lit, I work as a writer for an independent school. My favorite food is ice cream.
