About the Author:

Her first novel, In The Name of the Father, is about a woman's struggle to love herself, allow herself to be loved, and keep her faith in God despite what she witnessed in her home and in the church. 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 her God comes from her soul. 

Allyson was one of those kids who spent all day in church on Sunday, and was there at least three days during the week. She was a member of the usher board, youth choir and AWANA club just to name a few. Some of her best memories happened in church. As a result of growing up in church, all of Allyson's writing has a religious undertone. A woman of faith, Allyson knows how the pains of life can push you to places you never thought you would go. It is the everyday struggles of believers and the process of growing in Christ and failing in your flesh that she illustrates in her writing.  

Allyson also has a passion for helping teenage girls and women achieve their goals and understand they were placed on this earth for a purpose. She hopes every person will realize that apart from God they can do nothing, but with God anything is possible.

Review:

This book is a must read!!! I could not put it down. Not only was it a great fiction book, but the spiritual messages/meaning were powerful. I am sure if you read this book, there will be characters you will be able to connect with personally. Allyson was able to capture the audience in her writing with the ability to provide a 3-dimensional perspective about family, relationships, and a spiritual connection to God. It was great to see the author have characters that were flawed even though they were religious and spiritual, which allowed the reader to imagine being Joy, Angel, Lester, or any of the other characters. The book captivated my attention from the beginning. WELL DONE!!! What are you waiting for- get your book today!!! --- Erica LS, Amazon This debut novel chronicles the emotional and spiritual growth of the heroine, Joy, in a way that is relatable to the reader. This quick read will evoke conversation and debate, do I let go or do I hold on. The author vividly tells a story of a family whose faith is tested from a unique perspective. I enjoyed reading In The Name of The Father. With elemental styles reminiscent of Bridgette Jones' Diary and James Baldwin's Go Tell It On The Mountain, this book is hard to put down. I highly recommend this work for book club discussion. --- Kimberly W., Amazon I was truly blessed by how the author of this well written book was able to touch my heart. The family she portrayed reminded me of similar families i know who are going through the same thing. I loved how she focused on forgiveness from the wife. Women do tend to forgive more. I can't wait for the sequel. --- Deborah J., Amazon
