Today's #womenwinningwednesday feature is author Alesha Escobar. This woman is the writer of some of my favorite fantasy mash-up books: The Gray Tower Trilogy. These books have a strong, smart and cunning female protagonist who is a spy, an alchemist, and a woman fighting for the rights of the oppressed in Nazi Germany and at home. The imagination of Escobar's stories is phenomenal, but the ways in which she incorporates issues of equality into books that are not quite fantasy, sci-fi, or historical fiction, but all three, is amazing.
Alesha is also a strong supporter of other writers creating awesome female heroines in their work. She works to promote and include indie authors who are little known but talented. Moreover, she is a co-founder of the rockin' indie pub Creative Alchemy Inc, a wonderful small publishing company that promises to do well.
This talented woman understands social media, has a wonderful internet presence and blog and even creates fantastic trailers in her "spare" time. Along with her partner in crime artist/story boarder/graphic designer and co-publisher Luis Escobar, I'm not sure there is something this woman can't do. Check out Alesha Escobar and get acquainted with her work.
