When Allison Tebo is not writing books, she is a sales associate for a major transportation company. Her flash fiction has been published in Splickety and Spark magazine and she is the author of the popular series The Tales of Ambia, romantic comedy retellings of popular fairy tales.
A graduate of London Art College, Allison also pursues children’s illustration and cartooning. When she is not creating art with words or paint, she enjoys narration, singing, quilting, and, naturally, baking.
If she has any time left at all – you will invariably find her exercising her extroverted tendencies to their fullest capacity.
What Allison's Writing Looks Like
Hello, friend. I always like to know more about a book before I pick it up. Please do consider this my blurb.
I started writing when I was ten years old, and I haven’t been able to stop.
I believe that I have a moral duty to entertain readers with good stories that give them a respite from the press of everyday life – and that they deserve entertaining fiction. It is my goal to share Truth in my work and to pursue quality craftsmanship and escapist excellence in all my writing.
I write in multiple genres. I love exploring nearly every genre under the sun and I love pushing myself to try more. Skating onto thin and treacherous ice is just as thrilling to me as sailing on the smooth lakes of beloved genres.
I would rather write something timeless than relevant. Relevancy is often lost on readers, but something timeless resonates for as long as a book is in print.
I write character-driven fiction. I love to dig down into the depths of a heart and explore different personalities. I believe that no hero is perfect, that every villain has a reflection of ourselves and that both heroes and villains are a way of exploring the fundamental truths that rule a human heart.
I believe in happy endings – even if it’s not always the happy ending we think we want. I write about good triumphing over evil, and I like to spend more time in the light than in the dark.
Invariably, you will find a lot of humor in my writing. My pen has a leak and spills laughter all over the place. There’s very little I can do about it.
I hope you enjoy the adventures you may find in the pages of my books. Happy reading, my friend.
