Stella Marie Alden loves Zumba, yoga, watercolor painting, and fixing up her house.
Her first book, ‘How to Train Your Knight’, won Romance Writers of America coveted Molly
and Show me the Sparks Contests, and placed in three others. Truly remarkable, considering
she’s only been writing for three years.
Growing up in Vermont, she loved to make up stories. Crayons fought each other over size and
placement in their cardboard box and imaginary friends crowded the house. Her brother often
complained. “Tell her no one’s here, Mother.".
Her career paths have varied. She’s been a librarian, a classical clarinetist, recording studio
engineer, broadcast electronics repairman, and now she architects software programs. She lives
in Bergen County, NJ with her life-long hero and their two cats. Her two girls are grown but ever
supportive. You go Mom!
