Alison’s love for writing grew when she was young. Her poetry and stories have appeared in multiple elementary and junior high publications. Being a city girl, spending days at her Grandma’s farm, picking berries in the large garden, visiting the fluffy yellow chicks in spring and viewing the vast stars in the night sky gave her an appreciation and love for animals and agriculture.
Alisonís passions in life are music, flying, and quilting. These passions have given her opportunities to explore performing; lyric writing; recording; the business of music; different cultures and regions in North America; and the techniques of sewing pieces of fabric into a pattern and following a family tradition.
She graduated with her diploma in Professional Writing and her Bachelor of Applied Communications from MacEwan.
