Meku: (Welcome)

Rena Aliston was born in Washington, Pennsylvania. The daughter of a musician and crafter, she grew up in a creative environment, which sparked her imagination and love of the arts.

Rena Aliston is the author of Woven Tales: Selected Poems and Shadows and Mirrors: A Dark Poetry Collection.

Previously writing under the name Ofira Sephiroth, Rena is the author of four poetry books – Unspeakable Truths, Volume 1: Damnation Begins; Unspeakable Truths, Volume 2: Baptism By Blood; Versified Darkness and Versified Delusions.

She was first published in 2006 when two of her poems (The Eternal, Part 1: The Renderer and The Eternal, Part 2: The Surrender) were published in The Velvet Paradox, the second Dark Poetry Anthology by Jonathan Martin.

Rena also writes flash fiction and short stories. Residing in Louisville, Kentucky, she is also a small business-owner (Chained Dolls), an independent electronic music artist (Envy’s Bane), and the founder of Owl-Raven Books.

When not being creative, she enjoys gardening, archery and spending time with her family. Rena’s new short story collection, The Devil’s Grave: A Collection of Short Crime & Horror Stories will be released April 19, 2024.
