I’m a real writer now.
I donated my papers to Northern Illinois University and have received notification from curator Lynne M Thomas that they have been placed in the archives. Thomas is the Head of Rare Books and Special Collections at NIU, “a teaching and research collection with a special emphasis on American popular culture materials from the 19th and 20th centuries.”
A post at her blog — Confessions of a Curator — says:
I am pleased to announce that Alma Alexander has joined the roster of authors that have donated papers to the NIU SFWA Collection. Ms. Alexander is the author of the Worldweavers YA series, as well as stand alone novels The Secrets of Jin Shei and The Embers of Heaven. Alma is also a World Fantasy Nominee for her Changers of Days duology.
