Alana S. Newman

Alana S. Newman is riddled with many interests and talents. Besides writing about the ethics and challenges of donor-conception and third party reproduction, her main passions include music, writing, and gender relations/social studies.

Besides being the founder of The Anonymous Us Project, she is currently in pre-production of a film she co-wrote titled Adam & Eva with Brooklyn’s Michael Galinsky and Rumur Productions. Her vocal driven indie-folk songs have been heard on BBC2, and radio stations around the world, having released an EP titled The Misuse of Chemistry with London’s Chessclub Records in 2011 under her maiden name Alana Stewart.

Alana has appeared in Newsweek, Washington Post, Women’s Health and NPR and has been interviewed by journalists around the world, including Brazil, Japan, Spain, Australia, Sweden and more.

Alana is a servant to her muse, and also recently co-founded Happy Couple Workout, a fitness and relationship strengthening concept with her husband, Rickard Newman.
