Allison Hawn was born in Idaho and has spent her life obtaining adventures. The daughter of a musician, she was brought up all over the United States with occasional dalliances into foreign lands.
She holds a degree in psychology from Northwest Nazarene University in Nampa, Idaho, where she also had a weekly humor column with a small time newspaper "The Crusader."
Allison is the author of "Life is a Circus Run by a Platypus" and "Life is a Pirate Ship Run by a Velociraptor," both of which were picked up for publication by Sweatshoppe Publications. She currently resides in Spokane, Washington, where she works with the homeless, domestic violence victims, and other disenfranchised populations, but calls a myriad of locations home.
