Hello. I’m Allison Rose.
I’m a writer of all sorts: novels, short stories, screenplays. I started my career way back in those awkward childhood days writing short stories about life as a pre-teen. Inspired by my father’s love of movies (and stalled career as a screenwriter and novelist) I took to screenwriting. At 19 I had a near chance of selling a script to the TV series Charmed, and even while I couldn’t make it as a teenage screenwriter I still danced around with the idea of becoming a filmmaker.
Life happened, and, well, my career as a writer flew off the rails. Now, over ten years after my “un-Charmed” chance, I’ve turned back to writing. I currently have two series in the works (first featuring my YA sci-fi series, Tick) and a screenplay which I hope to get back to sometime in the future.
I have a great appreciation for stories which present strong-willed yet flawed characters, stories of unbeatable odds, and stories which feature action and adventure. I enjoy fantasy and science fiction that challenges the fragility and fate of mankind (I attribute Lois Lowry’s “The Giver” as being a life-changing piece of literature in my young adult life). With TV and film, I have a great affinity for historical fiction and non-fiction, particularly Depression-Era or WWII stories.
Having lived my entire life in Los Angeles and the surrounding suburbs, I am uncomfortable with extreme weather conditions of any kind, love farmers markets, outdoor movies, and running in the sunshine nearly any day of the year. And I still get a kick out of seeing film crews around town.
Also, bonus points to anyone who leaves me a Whovian comment anywhere in my website.
