About the Author

My name is Alison J. McKenzie. I’m a writer at ArenaNet working on Guild Wars 2. This blog is my personal blog and is not affiliated in any way with ArenaNet.

I am an advice columnist for the new digital literary fiction magazine Insomnia Press.

I’ve had poetry and journalism articles published, as well as some experience writing for tabletop roleplaying games. I’m shifting my focus to writing novels and short stories.

I was born in Texas, but grew up in Northern California. I have a joint bachelor’s degree in mathematics and computer science and am working on my thesis to finish my master’s degree in computer science at Digipen Institute of Technology. After spending many years studying computer programming, I decided that while I greatly enjoy it, I am truly passionate about writing.

  1. Wonderful to meet you, Alison. Thank you for liking my blogs. Just out of curiosity, did you find about them from Jo’s World or the Writers and Authors links? Either way, you are the first person aside from my friends and family to follow my blogs, and I am very grateful and excited! Please feel free to leave comments and tell your friends about them!
    I’d be happy to review one of your books or short stories if you like. You can also be a guest on my fairy tale blog, and post either a retelling of your favorite fairy tale or an original fairy tale of your own. Please let me know if you are interested in either of these.

    • I found them using the Writers and Authors links. I’d be interested in being a guest blogger at some point. Thanks 🙂
