V.J. Allison was born and raised in southern Nova Scotia, Canada, and her work reflects her strong Maritime roots. She is a stay-at-home mother to a son on the autism spectrum, married to the love of her life, and “mama” to a cat named Amber.
She has been writing various stories of novel length and short stories since her school days, and sees writing as a vital component to her life.
When she isn’t writing, she loves to read romance and science fiction novels; listen to music; watch various crime and forensic dramas; watch science fiction television shows and movies; and spend time with her large family and many friends.
She also follows the local heavy metal music scene, and attends live shows when she can. She believes in supporting local musicians, and promotes local bands on her Facebook author page, notably bands like Flesh Cauldron, Dirt Stache, and Whom Gods Destroy.
