Hey there! My name’s Allison, and I’m a writer.
I’ve been telling stories for as long as I’ve been able to talk. Around the age of ten, I started writing them down. Around that time, I also discovered that I enjoyed reading other people’s stories too. Arthur Conan Doyle, The Stratemeyer Syndicate, Ann M. Martin (and Peter Lerangis), Peter Lerangis, Harold L. Goodwin, Jude Watson, Maryrose Wood, Ann Rinaldi, Mark Jeffrey, and Kevin J. Anderson were some of my favorite authors growing up.
Throughout my teens, I dabbled primarily in fanfiction, poems, and wrote a handful of original pieces (mostly unfinished). At the time, I had big dreams of making a career out of writing books. (It’s a fun hobby, that’s for sure.) In 2018, I self-published a humorous novella called Cliche with my friend Aerin. I had a lot of fun with that project, and plan on writing a sequel soon.
Most of the content I produced between the ages of fourteen and twenty live on this blog. They don’t necessarily reflect where I am now on a lot of things, but just as I see little point in setting my childhood Barneys and Elmos on fire, I don’t care to destroy or deprecate these cute glimpses into a young creative’s naive psyche. So here they’ll stay.
