Episode 63: The Rose (Vol 1) by any other name with PD Alleva

On this episode of the DIY Writer podcast, Paul and I had a great conversation about his books, psychology, movies and tv shows. Everything he says about his book The Rose Vol 1… it’s true, it’s all true. You should check it out.


I write primarily in two genres, science fiction and horror. I've been writing all my life. Wrote my first full-length novel when I was twelve years old, a science fiction fantasy story that was inspired by a dream and a love for Lord of the Rings and Dungeons and Dragons. My first book was published in 2011 and since then I've published four additional books that include themes and genres in dark fiction, fantasy, metaphysical and paranormal, and psychology. I've been a practicing hypnotist and behavioral analyst for the past two decades. Now retried, I've devoted my life to writing full time.

My interests include quantum physics, philosophy, alien lore (Yes I love Ancient Aliens), conspiracy theories, science of mind, and the concept of mind over matter. And of course Reading! Some of my greatest literary influences have been Ray Bradbury, Edgar Allan Poe, Washington Irving, The Bronte Sisters, HP Lovecraft, Washington Irving, Stephen King, Clive Barker, and more recently Blake Crouch, VE Schwab, JD Barker, John Connolly, and Alma Katsu. My favorite book of all time continues to be Mary Shelley's Frankenstein. Additional influences are Star Wars, John Carpenter movies, silent horror films, Led Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, and Pearl Jam.

My new sci-fi series, The Rose, is scheduled for an October 7, 2020 worldwide release. The Rose Vol. 1 is the first book in a planned series. It's dystopian, speculative, science fiction, action-adventure, and a thriller. Did I mention the book features a sophisticated species of underground Alien Vampires? Hmm, I may have left that out. I also have a horror series titled Beyond the Chamber Door. Books one and two, Twisted Tales of Deceit and Presenting the Marriage of Kelli Anne and Gerri Denemer are currently published. The series features stand along stories in each installment. I'm currently editing book three, Golem, and writing book four in this series, Jigglyspot and the Zero Intellect.
