Alyssa Harad grew up in Boise, Idaho. Her adolescence was spent reading, writing bad poetry and staying up late to study with her friends. To avoid babysitting, she started a small business catering local parties, the first of many food-related jobs. (She and her partner wore black pants, uncomfortable white shirts with ruffles, and red aprons that said “At Your Service.”) Alyssa completed her undergraduate degree in English at Harvard though she could often be found hiding out in the kitchen where she worked part-time as a baker for the weekly High Teas. After graduating, she returned to Boise to work as a cook at a health food co-op, a small-time journalist, and a creative arts facilitator at a psychiatric hospital.

When the hospital drastically cut back its creative arts program she left to pursue her doctorate in English at the University of Texas, but never stopped thinking about the people she’d met and the stories she’d heard there. Throughout graduate school, she collaborated with therapists and others to work with girls and women, particularly survivors of sexual abuse and trauma.
