About the Author

Alisa Clements is the author of All at Once, a novel that invites readers to new heights of awareness by leading them nowhere and everywhere at once. The Midwest Review praised Clements’ exploration of “the boundaries of the imagination,” and indeed, the boundaries between fiction and reality blur when her protagonists attempt to ‘logon’ to the far-out ‘Outernet’ for a meeting of the minds. You can read an excerpt of the novel here.

Clements decided at age seven that she would be a writer when she grew up, but this vocation was eclipsed in college by the exploration of other media, primarily electronic music. As a student at Harvard University, she became a teaching assistant in the electronic music studio and stayed on after graduation, later taking the role of studio manager.

She then entered the Studio for Interrelated Media program at the Massachusetts College of Art to pursue her interests in experimental music, performance, and film. Upon receiving her MFA degree, she became an instructor at the college, teaching classes in electronic sound composition. Her experience in this fieldas a performer, composer, and teacherenters into All at Once in the guise of arcane facts about the effects of audio stimuli on human consciousness.

After a journey that has spanned several professions and countries, including thirteen years spent in Bahia, in northeastern Brazil, Alisa now lives in the Sirius intentional community in the woods of Western Massachusetts.
