Hello! Thanks for stopping by! My name is Alicia Gaile. I write YA fantasy, and I’m the author of The Faery Trials series and the standalone novel, Braid of Sand. I have a bachelor’s degree in Creative Writing from Georgia College & State University. When I’m not writing I like to draw, fish, and go for log walks in the woods.


Alicia Gaile is the author of YA contemporary fantasy and fairy tale retellings. She wrote her first fairy story at the age of twelve after visiting the Goll Woods Old-Growth forest in Ohio with her aunt and wandered into a dappled glade that was the perfect space for a fairy revel. After receiving a Creative Writing degree from Georgia College & State University she began writing early versions of Trial by Song while living abroad in southeast Asia. She currently resides in Atlanta, GA with her family and two dogs.

What People Say

Gaile’s prose is excellent, easy to read and beautifully evocative. Her characters are believable, and funny. I adored the sarcasm that ran rampant.
