Alice Archer

Alice Archer has questions. Lots of them. Scheming to put fictional characters through the muck so they can get to a better place helps her find answers. Thankfully, the questions never end. She writes stories about men finding themselves and falling in love because doing so feels like healing. She shares them with the hope that others might feel some healing too.


Alice has messed about with words professionally for many years as an editor and writing coach. She’s pretty much drenched in words from dawn to dusk. Okay, also at night. There are ink stains on the bedding from writing sloppily in notebooks in the dark.


After living in more than eighty places (starting with the first move when she was two) and cobbling together a portable lifestyle, Alice has a lot of story material to sort through. It has reassured her to discover that even though culture and beliefs can get people into a peck of trouble when they’re falling in love, the human heart beats the same in any language.


You’re likely to find Alice ignoring the clock to finish typing the thought. Or wandering by foot or bicycle, sort of hoping to get lost (with a pen and a little pad of paper in her pocket). Or screwing up time zone calculations when making calls to family and friends spread over two continents.


She currently lives near Nashville. Maybe this move will stick.
