Update (29 May 2015)

Finally posting a Chroma FAQ tonight. (Only 2 years late.)
And a little something that you could maybe possibly consider a sequelish one-shot.

I am currently writing the second draft of Chroma.
I will not be posting it online, because one day I want to publish it.
FAIR WARNING: this means I will be removing the original draft from FP sometime in the next couple of years.

Feel free to PM me at any point about how the current draft is going! =)


Update (16 November 2013)

Chroma is complete. The full story will be posted soon. =))


Update (2012)

So this is a thing that happened.

Chroma was nominated for SKoW Best Drama.
Konstantine was nominated for SKoW Best Main Character Portrayal.
And I was nominated for SKoW Best Breakout Author.
SKoW is an FP Romance awards site that I've been a fan of for years now.
And they nominated me.
And then the readers voted, and Konstantine won best MC.
Which is incredible.
And I'm so thankful.


My name is Alora. I'm 23. I've only ever wanted to be an author.
I'm US born and Australia raised.
I have a degree in Writing & Literature and am now studying to be a teacher.


A reviewer asked me to make a playlist for Chroma, so I made one on Spotify and posted it on my blog, here. In case any of you also wanted a Chroma playlist. It's all the songs from the chapter titles, plus a bunch of music I listen to while writing Chroma. =) Enjoy.


If you want to contact me, private message is fine, and email is great too.
You could also ask me anything on my Tumblr, if you'd prefer to be totally anonymous for whatever reason. Please excuse the mass fandom-related reblogging. =P

The Inexplicable State of Being There by big.break.and.laryngitis reviews
Brody Hansen and I, we had a system. I didn't like him and he didn't like me, but we both liked watching each other undress. That's just what happened when you gave good-looking, hormonal teenagers bedroom windows that faced each other. Full sum inside.

Baby, I'm Not Finished by xoxluurve reviews

Rough Petals by Penelope P reviews
So was it a really big deal that I was getting paid for sex? It was a huge misunderstanding. And so what if that letter finally arrived which made my stomach roll. I would have handled it. It's his fault he made my life even more complicated.

Ridiculous by WithoutException reviews
“Hey, River,” Addison said, casually, as she lay stretched out across her friend’s couch, “Why haven’t we ever dated?” A mildly ridiculous one-shot.

Dare To Trust by Jenecis reviews
If you asked Rachel about trust, she'd say it's difficult, being outcasted at home and school. If you asked Jay, he'd give you that sexy Gothic smirk and say it isn't worth it. So why did he have to walk out of her bathroom and change everything? CH 12 UP

Smooth Move by DancingChaChaFruit reviews
.FIN. I was starting to think he was my bad luck charm. After all, it was no coincidence that I embarrassed myself every time I saw him. Just throw in bookstores, sisters, best friends, blind dates, and dentists, and you’ve got my newly complicated life.

Chroma reviews
Oh, yes. Nate Rochester was someone you could fall in love with at first sight. I might have, had he not ruined the moment with, "There's a difference between people-watching and stalking, you know." Inspired by Something Corporate's 'Konstantine'.

The Living Room reviews
I almost stood, feet bracing against the carpet, that in spots was so worn down that it had become only netting through which you could see the concrete. It would have been so easy to walk out in that moment, while she slept. A spin-off of my story Chroma

She'll find me naked in the early sun, my mouth blood-stained, my skin torn and scarred, my destruction, my violence, evident and inescapable, as I lay sleeping at the foot of the wall where my beautiful never-dying roses climb.
