| Although Texas and the green fields of England of the early 1800s lie far apart, in Texas Allister discovered the works of Georgette Heyer and found a genre that touched her imagination. As she savored the books, she absorbed the manners, the history, and the dialogue of the period.
A dare issued by a friend: "If I can write a book, so can you,"led to the publication of her first novel, The Prudent Partnership.
Allister, a high school English teacher, enjoys reading, traveling, especially to England, and encouraging her students to write.
