Allyson Simonian lives in California with her husband and children. She hadn't picked up a romance novel for quite a while. Then along came the Fifty Shades trilogy. A phenomenal love story, in Allyson's opinion. Left wanting more after reading it, she decided to create her own characters. If E.L. James' work is Twilight fan fiction, then Allyson's books are best described as Fifty Shades fan fiction.
Allyson's first two novellas, Fade to Love and Source One, are now published. Stormy Love is due out in early 2014. You can learn more at allysonsimonian.com.
