(1) Welcome to the Writing Prompts Crew. Tell us a little about yourself.
Allie: I’m a wife and mother of a funny, three year old, curly-head boy. I spend most of my time trying to keep up with him. If I’m not dreaming-up something worth reading, you can usually find me piddling around on social media, listening to John Mayer or attempting to wrangle the mountain of dishes in my sink. (All the while, praying my son will take a decent nap.)
(2) How did you become interested in being a writer?
Allie: I remember making a list of aspirations when I was about 12. One of the top to-do’s was writing a novel. It’s something I’ve always thought I’d like to accomplish. There is just something amazing about the entire process; from coming up with names and places, to imagining how they interact with the plot twists and turns from scene to scene.
(3) Can you tell us three unique things about you that we may not know?
Allie: I have a secret love for horse movies. Yes, this includes Westerns. Unless you know me personally, or have a habit of stocking my profile(s), most probably wouldn’t know that I play two instruments: piano and guitar. I started piano and voice lessons at age 5. I have also been in love with Yanni since I was six years old. I saw him once on a PBS special at the Taj Mahal, I believe. The rest is history. I really hated practicing for piano, so I think I owe it to him for reawakening my sense of awe and love for music.
Thank you, Allie, and welcome to the Writing Prompts Crew!
