Allison E. Alexander has a degree in English from Canadian Mennonite University and a certificate in Publishing from Ryerson University. She’s worked as an advertising assistant, a graphic designer, a layout artist, a news writer, a blogger, a managing editor, and an art director. Currently, she combines her love of art, fantasy novels, and geekery by writing books and designing covers for indie authors.

As a bisexual, chronically ill woman, she’s particularly passionate about including diverse characters in her stories and art. Her nonfiction writing includes topics like pop culture, disability, worldbuilding, and faith. In her Gender-Swapped Classics series, she edits, adapts, and abridges classic novels for modern readers.

Gaming, reading, and playing piano fill up Allison’s spare time. She plays a warcerer in D&D, is a proud earthbender, and relates to anxious, depressed robots. She makes her home in Hoth, a.k.a. Winnipeg, Canada, with her partner and their giant collection of tabletop RPG manuals.
