My Bio

I am the author of the Aenya series, an interconnected epic fantasy adventure story which includes Ages of Aenya and The Princess of Aenya. From the time I was six years old, I have only wanted to do one thing, and that's to tell stories. For me, the visual and literary arts go hand in hand. So when I was nine, I dragged my father to DC Comics HQ in NYC to solicit my first superhero, Red Panther. By fourteen, I was sending out queries for my first novel, The Nomad. In high school, I discovered I was not quite as talented in drawing and painting, but I continued to hone my passion for the written word, until earning my BA in English Fiction at the University of South Florida. I continue to find inspiration in the visual arts, sometimes forming entire plots from a single image.


I am always on the lookout for dedicated artists to help bring Aenya to life. The pieces I commission are for promotional purposes, but more importantly, they inspires me. I look for artists who specialize in portraits, with an emphasis on the human form, and fantasy landscapes. Depending on the project, I am prepared to pay anywhere between $100 and $1500. Please e-mail me directly at alimonosbooks@gmail.com if interested. Serious inquiries only.


Be sure to check out my author site at www.nickalimonos.com, where you can pick up the epic fantasy adventures that are Ages of Aenya and The Princess of Aenya.

Thelana: Feminist Icon?

Thelana: Feminist Icon?

Is a naked heroine sexist? ----- I can already hear the detractors, the angry feminists calling me out as a sexist. Their argument, I imagine, will go something like this, Thelana is the lead heroine in Nick Alimonos' fantasy epic, "Ages of Aenya," and she has everything we love to see in a female character: strength, intelligence, and she can dish out punishment good as her male companion. She even passes the Bechdel test! So why am I up in arms about Thelana? Well, when it comes to hyper-sexualizing women, this author's hit rock bottom. We're not talking chainmail bikinis or skintight tights here either, because with this super hero, the
