It came as no surprise to anyone when Allie decided she wanted to write humorous adventure-filled romance stories. After all her life has been one of constant adventure. From surviving the wilds of oft-flooding South East Texas where she lives to growing up in Saudi Arabia where her brother tried to sell her to Bedouins (for what amounts to less than $1.50), it's been non stop. And she loves every minute of it.
Inspired by her friends and family, Allie knew her books could never be about hum drum everyday life. Her stories have always had a decidedly paranormal twist to them. They're filled with past lives, chain e-mail sending oracles, magic, sexy gods, and heroines who know exactly what they want and aren't afraid to get it.
Most of her free time is spent spoiling nieces and nephews, pumping them up on sugar and caffeine then sending them back to their parents. Revenge for all the slights of being the youngest child :-).
Allie has a close group of friends she refers to fondly as the evil elf, wicked witch and the weird wood nymph, without them and more writer friends, she wouldn't have made it past her first very bad novel.
When not writing the stories of all the people in her head, Allie can be found fighting off her demonic cat, chasing a dog with a penchant for purple underwear, avoiding the kitchen and grocery stores at all costs, and trying not to think about her next deadline.
