Meet Allison Grace, Bestselling Author of Broken Promises Never Mend, Prepaid Mistress and author of a total of seven novels. Allison's passion for words began in early childhood, she had always been fond of reading about life, love, poetry, and short stories. As she matured, she challenged herself to hone her craft, exploring various story lines and navigating into the tumultuous world of adult relationships. Throughout her teen & young adult years she decided to put pen to paper and indulge one of her fantasies, to become a writer. Some of her favorite authors include Donald Goines, VC Andrews, Jackie Collins, Judy Blume, and ZANE. This eccentric choice of novels allowed her to see different genres, writing styles and what they entailed. Each were quite different and taught her a lot with regards to target audiences, storylines, and descriptions. Nothing prepared her however for her venture into Urban Literature.
Allison's first experience with Urban Lit began when she jumped at the chance and was soon an official Street Team/Pep Squad member of the "Cartel Publications" spearheaded by Essence Best-selling Author T Styles and her partner Vice President, Charisse Washington.
Allison is currently focused on a collection of other works slated for release under her imprint "Full of Essence Publishing". Her novel "Prepaid Mistress" debuted at number 5 on the Amazon Bestsellers list for African American women's fiction. Allison followed up that success with "Bitch Clique Reloaded". With many more titles expected under her belt, Allison's pen is certainly on fire. She is an author, poet, radio show host, entrepreneur, and most importantly a mother teaching her sons the value of hard work. As we enter 2020, Allison has partnered with Julia Press Simmons to bring you a series of Sticky Situations that touch on drama in books that many can and will relate to.
"I was blessed to enter this industry and know how hard it is, so the least I can do is give back." she says with a gleam in her eye and a smile on her face. This native New Yorker prides herself in assisting others and promotes literacy to her children.
This isn't the end of Allison Grace and we can tell she's got a long way to go but the rewards have been phenomenal.
Allison Grace resides in New York with her two sons and her black cat Phoenix.
