About Aila



Hey, you! I’m Aila, and I am delighted to make your acquaintance. Welcome to my crazy, often laughable, journey through writing my first novel and navigating the world of self-publishing. Who knew it was more complicated than just tossing up a few words onto Amazon, right? 😉

I’m glad you’re here. It’s a scary world out there, and we may need to hold hands to get through it all.

In all seriousness, I look forward to getting to know you all while I share my thoughts and ideas on this process. If you’re newer to the writing scene than I am, if that is possible, I hope you’re able to learn from my mistakes!



About the Author

Aila Stephens owns approximately one billion socks, according to her husband. While she has a growing assortment of hot teas, her favorite is Lady Grey and she finds it to be beneficial when battling the ever-dreaded writer’s block.

Aila dreams of one-day visiting London and becoming besties with John Barrowman and Martin Freeman. She doesn’t like when people try to convince her that this will likely never happen. She calls those people delusional and refuses to invite them to her tea parties with Richard Ayoade, who she feels is already her bestie in spirit.

Aside from being a tea-loving Anglophile with an affinity for socks, Aila Stephens is a writer. She can easily be found in her natural habitat: in front of her laptop, listening to something you’ve probably never heard, and smiling like she’s just gotten away with murder – which as a writer, she feels she often does.

Aila’s first full-length novel, Sex, Love & Technicalities, is coming Summer 2016.
