I am a 24-year-old Nebraskan who has been writing ever since I can remember. I began by miserable attempts at lyric-writing, which turned into better lyric-writing, some poetry attempts, and short story attempts. In the sixth grade, I was assigned a creative first-person story from the view of an inanimate object. I chose a computer, wrote the monologue and received quite a good grade, along with a note from my teacher: "Allegra... You are a writer!" This, of course, spurred me into my current vein of writing. I am no expert writer, nor am I a literary genius. Rather, I should hope that those who read my work are transported into another world and come to care for characters I created and love as my own family. After high school, I had some difficult times and began to write a story about a halfling winged woman in an empire as large as several world countries, which turned into my first officially finished work, "Hammer & Bone," which is self-published to the Kindle e-reader. I am expanding the story to include five books, all of which include the same characters, with some new characters of course, and I am currently actively writing the second book in the series, tentatively titled "The Changeling." I love to discuss writing in any form, although I would say of myself that my favorite genre to write is certainly fantasy-based fiction, especially considering that this is the genre of "Hammer & Bone." Please feel free to contact me if you have questions or topics to discuss. I am always open to talk to other authors, whether you are published or not.
