Her first novel, In The Name of the Father, is about a woman's struggle to love herself, allow herself to be loved, and keep her faith in God despite what she witnessed in her home and in the church. In the name of the Father has a dual meaning, it represents the main character being influenced by her biological father and her heavenly father. Her passion for telling the story about a woman's struggle to love herself, her man and her God comes from her soul.
Allyson was one of those kids who spent all day in church on Sunday, and was there at least three days during the week. She was a member of the usher board, youth choir and AWANA club just to name a few. Some of her best memories happened in church. As a result of growing up in church, all of Allyson's writing has a religious undertone. A woman of faith, Allyson knows how the pains of life can push you to places you never thought you would go. It is the everyday struggles of believers and the process of growing in Christ and failing in your flesh that she illustrates in her writing.
Allyson also has a passion for helping teenage girls and women achieve their goals and understand they were placed on this earth for a purpose. She hopes every person will realize that apart from God they can do nothing, but with God anything is possible.
