Allison E. Alexander is a writer, editor, artist, gamer, and chronic illness mage. She has a degree in English from Canadian Mennonite University and a certificate in Publishing from Toronto Metropolitan University. Throughout her career, she’s always worked in publishing in some capacity—as an advertising assistant, a graphic designer, a layout artist, a news writer, a blogger, and an editorial director. 

With a splash of art and mapmaking on the side, Allison currently writes and edits books full time. She writes nerdy nonfiction, fantasy fiction, a blog about publishing, and a newsletter for speculative fiction writers.

She makes her home in Hoth, a.k.a. Canada, with her partner and their giant collection of tabletop RPG manuals. You can also find her playing a warcerer in D&D, co-hosting The Worldbuilder’s Tavern podcast, or chasing otter penguins off the Normandy.
