Alice is co-author with her husband Christopher Hodapp of several books in the popular “For Dummies” series for Wiley publishing, including Conspiracy Theories and Secret Societies for Dummies and The Templar Code For Dummies. She attended California State University at Northridge and Los Angeles Valley College, majoring in both history and motion picture production, and worked for many years in advertising as a writer and broadcast producer.
She's traveled throughout Europe and the Middle East, always looking for the nearest ruin, and she’s written extensively on the subject of the Barbary Wars and the birth of the United States Navy. Her first novel, Heart’s Blood grew out of her love for the town of Salem, Massachusetts, and its glory in the age of tall ships.
Chris and Alice's most recent book together is RVs & Campers For Dummies in 2021. Always in search of the history of America, they now spend a great deal of time on the road in their Airstream travel trailer, startling wildlife, seeking adventures and cool Masonic lodges. When home, they live in Indianapolis with their canine companion, Sophie the Flying Poodle.
Stevie Prescott is Alice's pen name when writing erotic historical fiction with a higher heat level for more mature audiences. Her most recent Stevie Prescott novel is The Acolyte, published in 2020 by Blushing Books.
