Allison is writing a novel that she hopes to publish someday. Set in a newsroom in a small New Hampshire town, it’s a coming-of-age story that contains elements of true crime. She describes it as a young adult book for adults.


She is an avid karaoke singer.


During her brief time as a food writer, she learned kitchen techniques from professional chefs. Her husband still does most of the cooking, but Allison can now make the perfect martini, the perfect shrimp cocktail and the perfect burger.
