Book Lovers. Can you spare a few hours to help me?
I am looking for help in lots of different ways, either with beta reading, reviewing, proofreading, promoting, etc. If you can spare a few hours a month, please email me for more details; no commitment. Thank you. Allyson.
Hello and thank you very much for taking the time to check out my web page. I really appreciate your support and interest in my books.
I hail from England, but since 2010, when my partner retired, spend a lot of time travelling or visiting other countries. Myself and then partner, now husband, were travelling around America in a motorhome in 2014 and although the scenery and the attractions were great, I was getting a little bored; there are only so many books you can read in one day. Being an avid reader, I had always had an urge to write a story, so I picked up a pen and started to write my first book. It has been a roller coaster ride ever since.
Multi Award Winning Author
There was so much to learn about being an independent writer and publisher, and to be honest I am still learning. Now three years down the line I have a few books published, fiction and nonfiction, and still get that tingle of satisfaction when I sell a copy or get a review. It is humbling to think that the words I threaded together on a page, other people are reading and hopefully enjoying or learning something from them.
I am amazed with the author community, who selflessly will help and support other authors, offer advice about anything and not expect a thing in return. It is truly a great network to be part of and I am proud to be a member of such a group of fantastic people.
Although I write about different topics and do not have a central theme, being a 'mature aging gracefully' woman, I feel akin to the problems of aging and relationships, and therefore a few stories lean towards the boomer generation. Tales of mature relationships with mature people, about people who have character and humour, who have a history; people just like us.
I like to call it Hen Lit, Not Chick Lit, but it is not just about falling in love. They are about real relationships with lots of laughs along the way.
I hope you enjoy my stories or find my nonfiction books helpful. Please check my web page or social media pages if you would like to contact me. I love emails and try to answer within two days.
