Alisa is also the editor of III Gifts which is a book by her late brother, Carey Hughley, III. Published posthumously from his journals the book chronicles a journey of self-discovery with an idealism and zeal for life characteristics of individuals in their twenties, but tempered by a respect for spirituality and the metaphysical realm well beyond his years.
