Alyson Hawksworth


Alyson Hawksworth is a young writer who believes that her life thus far has been both ordinary and extraordinary.

Ordinary in that she grew up in rural Eastern Ontario in the ‘60’s in a family of 6 children whose parents were both WW2 Veterans.

Ordinary in that her parents dreamed that their children would be educated and pursue livelihoods that were both personally satisfying and also of practical use to the community and to their country.

From these humble beginnings came extraordinary experiences involving remarkable people that Alyson met along the way.
