Alison Acheson - Author

Alison Acheson lives in the East Side of Vancouver, in a little house with a wood stove (which is nice to write by on rainy days). She shares the house with her youngest son, who likes to sing. She has written books for all ages: the very young, the growing-quickly and the supposedly grown-up. She likes to listen to music, dance and play the saxophone for fun.

As a kid, she was homeschooled and was always reading books. Piles and piles of books. She tried to stack them high enough to build a house, but it was too hard to make a roof --- and where she grew up it rains too much not to have a roof. Now her favorite things are hammocks and trains. Both are good for reading. And for dreaming.
