Name:Allison Kelsey
Birthdate:Apr 21
Location:Cincinnati, Ohio, United States of America
Allison Kelsey started writing at the encouragement of her eighth grade English teacher. As a 14-year-old, she was embarrassed by the attention. Finding books on writing on her desk when she’d come in for class; notes on her assignments about how she’ll be published one day; subjecting her fellow classmates to listen to her 20 page short story because the teacher wanted her to keep reading. Now? Allison can’t imagine doing anything else.

After snagging second place in the Fantasy, Futuristic, and Paranormal category of the 2003 Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense, Allison switched from writing weird to writing chick lit. She is currently working on a novel and several short stories set in Center City, Philadelphia. And, no, her heroines don’t work in the publishing industry nor do they wear Manolo Blahniks or Jimmy Choos.

Allison lives in Cincinnati, Ohio, with her three cats. When she’s not writing, Allison is busy finishing up her bachelors' degrees in journalism and English literature/creative writing.
