ABOUT Alicia Kat Vancil

Alicia Kat Vancil
Kat grew up in the heart of Silicon Valley where she amused herself by telling stories to anyone around her—her family, her friends…random strangers. Eventually she actually started writing those stories down instead of just spending hours hanging out in fake Ikea living rooms and tell More...



Patrick Connolly is about to get the one thing he has always wanted…kinda.

We all have that one thing—that one thing we wish for on every first star of the night. Wealth. Fame. Love. For geeky artist Patrick Connolly, it is the attention of his beautiful and seemingly unattainable classmate Nualla Galathea. There’s just one problem—he’s got less than a snowball’s chance in hell, and that’s being generous.

However, when a heated argument erupts in the halls of Bayside Academy forcing Patrick and Nualla’s paths to collide, Nualla surprisingly jumps at the opportunity to be his date. Patrick may think his wish has just come true, but this gentle boy will need more than artistic talent to combat the deadly secrets lurking behind his dream girl’s veil of normality. Like the fact that she isn’t even human.


Beautiful Stranger is a Marked Ones novella that is approximately 20,000 words long.
