Allyson Charles is the author of humorous, small-town, contemporary romances under the Allyson Charles nom de plume. She writes steamy historicals as Alyson Chase. A former attorney, she happily ditched those suits and now works in her pajamas writing about men’s briefs instead of legal briefs. When she’s not writing, she’s probably engaged in one of her favorite hobbies: napping, eating, or martial arts (That last one almost makes up for the first two, right?).
