“Writing is my journey of discovery and transformation, where reality meets fiction and myths reveal their true magic…”

Alysia Helming

Why I became a novelist…

Of everything I do and have done in my life, I’m happiest when I’m writing. It’s who I am and what I do. This is how I came about to creating a young adult novel series that combines romance with science fiction, but also is educational and inspiring to people of all ages. This was the birth of The Protogena Chronicles™.

My writing journey and fascination with Greek mythology and its evocative symbolism began two years ago. The beauty and light of the Greek spirit in combination with my love for ancient mythology and a series of synchronicities led me to begin writing the first novel in the series called Protogenesis.

After almost a year of writing, I decided to come to Greece to further explore, and fell in love with the country and its culture. Over the span of a year and six visits to Athens, I learned a great deal about the current issues and crisis that the country and people face. This became the back story of my novel.

Staying true to the nature of the country, portraying its real beauty and strength of its people:

“This is a story of the perseverance & metamorphosis of the human spirit”
