Allyson Olivia, a native of Baltimore, Maryland wants her stories to inspire others to keep going. No matter the test or trial you face, she believes you can learn from it and be a better person moving forward.

As a child, she took an interest in writing poetry and short stories and later pursued that passion in her studies. She has a bachelor’s in Mass Communications from Susquehanna University and a master’s from Syracuse University in Journalism.

Her first novel, In The Name of the Father, is about a woman’s struggle to love and keep her faith in God despite what she witnessed in her home. In the name of the Father has a dual meaning, it represents the main character being influenced by her biological father and her heavenly Father. Her passion for telling the story about a woman’s struggle to love herself, her man and God comes from her soul.

As a woman of faith, Allyson knows how the pains of life can push you to places you never thought you would go. In her desire to grow in Christ, she realizes the everyday struggles of believers and how we fail in the flesh. Those struggles are illustrated in her writing.
