About

Me.

Allison originally hails from Los Angeles, CA. She spends a lot of time wondering why she ever left, but does enjoy a few things about New York City. The train, for one. It’s always on time and never crowded. Also bodegas. Because Allison loves breakfast and tiny packets of Advil.

Before her career in advertising, Allison worked in Books-To-Television at WME. Meaning she read a lot of galleys and can tell you how to option your YA novel. She loves children’s books and science fiction equally, but what really gets her going is a stylistic alternative history.

For fun, Allison writes sketch comedy and things she’s scared of showing people. Someday she’ll live on a gorgeous, nonfunctioning farm with her husband Oscar Isaac.
