Los Angeles native Alyse Wax is the daughter of a writer. So naturally, she rebelled and wanted nothing to do with the craft. Alyse spent a number of years as a television producer, working on shows like Big Brother, Hell’s Kitchen, Penn & Teller: Off the Deep End and Punkin’ Chunkin’ 2008. Eventually, however, she grew up and realized that following in her mother’s footsteps is not the worst thing in the world.
A chance meeting led to a job at FEARnet.com, a top horror website and cable network. Alyse worked there for nearly seven years as a reporter and television critic, eventually becoming Associate Editor, before Kabletown shut down the popular site. Continuing with her passion for the horror and sci-fi genre, she is a regular contributor to SYFY WIRE. Other sites her work has appeared on include Collider.com, CraveOnline.com, Mashable.com, IndieWire.com, Fangoria Magazine, ShockTillYouDrop.com, Bloody-Disgusting.com, SuperHeroHype.com, ComingSoon.net, DailyDead.com, and Deadly Magazine. Her work has also appeared in Teen People Magazine, Weekly World News, Zap2It.com, and USA Network’s CharacterBlog.com.
Alyse’s first book, Curious Goods: Behind the Scenes of the ‘Friday the 13th’ TV Series, published by Bear Manor Media, is currently available for purchase. A USC Film School graduate and former figure skater, Alyse lives in LA with a house full of boys: her husband and three dogs.
