PhotobucketAfter dabbling her toe in the PR, marketing and internet worlds, Allison Winn Scotch discovered that there’s nothing finer than a) working for yourself, b) working from home and c) getting paid to write full-time. To that end, she earned her keep for eight years as a freelance magazine scribe for every title you could think of, from Glamour to Self to Shape to Redbook to Men’s Health to Women’s Health to Family Circle to InStyle Weddings to Bride’s to Cooking Light to Parents to American Baby. You get the idea. These days, she primarily focuses on celebrity interviews and profiles, which indulges her pop culture obsession and gives her an excuse to read junky magazines and watch lots of tv.

Of course, while all of the above is wonderful and fabulous and allowed her heart to swell each time she walked by a newsstand, what she’s really most proud of is the publication of her novels, The One That I WantTime of My Life, and The Department of Lost and Found, and The Song Remains the Same.

She lives in Los Angeles with her family, where she is at work on her new projects.
