New York Times bestselling author Alethea Kontis is a princess, a goddess, a force of nature, and a mess. The sister of a famous jewelry designer and granddaughter of an infamous pirate, Alethea has profited from screwing up the alphabet, organizing Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter universe, sharing all her family's deepest, darkest secrets, and making little girls cry.
Alethea is the author of Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark-Hunter Companion, as well as the AlphaOops series of picture books. Her short fiction has appeared in over ten anthologies, as well as venues such as Realms of Fantasy and Apex Magazine, and she is the monthly book reviewer at Orson Scott Card's Intergalactic Medicine Show. You can find Princess Alethea online at: www.aletheakontis.com. Her debut YA fairy tale novel, Sunday, will be published by Harcourt Books in 2012.
Born in Burlington, Vermont, Alethea now lives in Northern Virginia with her Fairy Godfamily. She makes the best baklava you've ever tasted and sleeps with a teddy bear named Charlie.
