Allison Alexander is an earthbending Ravenclaw from Hoth who’s more comfortable curling up at home with a video game than venturing out into the wild. As an author, editor, and blogger, Allison aims to make spaces for minority characters in science fiction, fantasy, and pop culture. Also, she plays a bard in Dungeons & Dragons, so that should tell you everything you need to know about her.
From her home in Winnipeg, Manitoba—which she shares with her husband, Jordan—Allison writes books, edits novels, and mentors aspiring authors through a writer’s guild.
