About Beth Alvarez

Beth Alvarez is an Illinois-born author living in Memphis, Tennessee, along with her husband, daughter, and a very mean cat. A visual arts major, she worked previously as a freelance graphic designer. Against all advice, she makes her own book covers.

Reading The Hobbit led Beth to fall in love with fantasy at age 8. She later developed a love for vampires and the supernatural, which is unsurprising, given she never outgrew the goth phase.

In her free time, Beth enjoys drawing, hitting the road in her beloved Mustang, sipping tea, sewing for her Asian ball-jointed dolls, and making her prior-Marine husband spar in the kitchen for sake of writing more convincing combat scenes.

Beth’s fantasy novel Serpent’s Mark won the 2022 Darrell Award for Best Novel.
Her fantasy novel Spectrum Blade was a finalist for the 2022 MPL Richard Wright Literary Award.
