There are moments in


when everything shifts.

The world




in on itself,

until it becomes

something else,

somewhere else.

Reflections on the Asylum

Comments and Reviews

"The story is pretty awesome. Imagery is amazing. The twins were precious and I loved the heck out of them."

~ Skylar, on When My Eyes Were Still Blue

Magic is real, and it's all around us. We just have to remember.

~ Alice Wakefield ~

"Every time I stop reading I find myself wanting more. The storyline is very intriguing and so well written."

Updates and Upcoming Projects





October Madness

October means a lot of things to a lot of people -- for the Asylum, it means lots of OC art as I post pictures for 3 different drawing prompt challenges daily. By the end of the month, 3 new books will also be published. With any luck, the official websites for The Wonderland Market and Castle of Hearts will also be launched. Stay tuned for all the exciting updates to come!


Works in Progress

Hundreds of stories are waiting their turn to be told. These are some of the ones I'm currently focusing on.

Blood Rose

Series: Nyx's Roses (book 1)

Status: final edit

Sheridan Forest has always known there's more to the world than what she could see. After years of searching, chasing dreams she didn't understand, she's pulled into the magical world in a way she never expected.

Centuries after the death of Italy's Warrior Princess, magic is all but forgotten in the world. But now the phoenix rises again, and the war between the magical and the nonmagical sparks back to new life.


Anima's Ghost

Series: Untitled

Status: 2nd Draft

She's supposed to be studying for her GED, but all Anima can focus on is escaping into ghost stories. She runs a paranormal blog, but at 15 years old, with no means to travel and living under strict rules, she does all she can with internet research. Then she gets a message from another paranormal blogger -- except this one can go to the haunted places himself. 


Follow the Moon

Status: 1st draft

Blair Jamison's the eldest child in her family, but the business is passed down through male heirs -- the business of torture, experimentation and brutal harvesting, all in the name of science. Blair's younger brother is too pure and innocent for that kind of life, so to spare him from it she runs to the only people capable of helping -- the monsters that she was raised to kill.


They tried to tell me I'm not in Wonderland anymore. I just laughed.

I make the world my Wonderland.


About the Author

Alice Wakefield

It started out as a distraction. A way to distract myself from public school and the terrible people within it. It started with one girl, barely a character, thrown into a gap I created in a story written by someone else. But over time, that one girl revealed herself more and more to me. Told me her secrets, her past. Introduced me to her brothers and sisters, her allies and enemies -- her world. Until I eventually fell down a rabbit hole I may never climb out of.
