Allyson Mayze is a mother, author, and programmer/computer scientist. Writing has been a lifelong passion for her. She graduated from university and began taking martial arts, eventually dabbling in the world of pro-wrestling. After having worked several jobs, including the work she does now as a ColdFusionist, and starting a family, Allyson was able to concentrate on one of her first loves again–writing–and decided to combine it with her other passions: martial arts, self-deense, and motherhood, with a few of the pro-wrestling experiences thrown in. Tales of the Anna Khonda, the first novel she completed and had published, is the result of her efforts.
