Alys Arden was raised by the street performers, tea leaf-readers, and glittering drag queens of the View Carré. She cut her teeth on the streets of New York and has worked all around the world since. One cliché-gray-day in London, she started writing The Casquette Girls in serialized form on the Internet. Her debut novel garnered over 1.2 million reads online, a starred review in Publisher’s Weekly, and became a number one best seller on Amazon. It was recently acquired by Skyscape in a two book deal.
