V.J. Allison was born and raised in southern Nova Scotia, Canada, and her work reflects her strong Maritime roots. She is a stay at home mother to a son on the autism spectrum, married to the love of her life, and “mama” to a cat named Marnie.
She has been writing various stories of novel length and short stories since her school days, and sees writing as a vital component to her life.
When she isn’t writing, she loves to read romance and science fiction novels (notably Star Wars); listen to music (heavy metal, rock, alternative); watch various crime and forensic dramas; watch science fiction television shows and movies; and spend time with her large family and many friends.
Conditions like Occipital and Trigeminal Neuralgia have never slowed down this self-described "geeky rocker chick". Her occipital neuralgia is the result of childhood injuries, and she has adapted her writing to accommodate it. Her trigeminal neuralgia diagnosis is more recent, and she is learning how to adapt to the flare ups from it. It's not always easy, but V.J. always finds a way to get her work done.
