Allison Jones grew up in Louisville, Kentucky with a big imagination. Her mother would spend countless hours reading to her from the Little Colonel Series and The Secret Garden where characters came alive as she listened to the words. Her craving for putting pen to paper was cultivated during a creative writing class in college and from there she was hooked. With the urging of her mother, she submitted various writing samples to an emerging MFA program where she was accepted. After graduation, she spent more than a decade writing for various local and regional publications along with growing her blog, Square Peg, Round Hole.
She has spent the last twenty-five years, advocating for her oldest son, Bailey who was born with Down syndrome ensuring that his life is full of opportunity and acceptance. Her family unit consists of her spouse, Brian, Bailey, and youngest son, Bryce. When she’s not obsessively reading, creating new plot twists or sharing a window into her life on her blog, she enjoys being a crazy football fan at the college her youngest son attends and hanging out with her tribe of soul sisters.
