Allison is a writer and native New Yorker who favors humor over sadness, travel over television, and coffee over sleep.

Her writing has appeared in The New Yorker, The New York Times, Washington Post, CNN, Buzzfeed, Cosmopolitan, New York Magazine, Slate, ELLE, New York Daily News, New York Post, Vice, Allure, NBC, InStyle, Refinery29, Health Magazine, Parents Magazine, and more. Plus, she has 16 years' of marketing, PR, and digital media savvy to boot. She's also pretty queer. And sometimes funny. (Or at least she thinks so.)

She is working on two books, Urban Inbreeding, about sex, drugs, and parents who are cousins; and Pants on Fire, about the history of lying (the world's and her own). She is actively seeking representation.
