Allyson Charles lives in Northern California. Sheâ€™s the author of the "Pineville Romance" series, small-town, contemporary romances published by Lyrical Press. A former attorney, she happily ditched those suits and now works in her pajamas writing about menâ€™s briefs instead of legal briefs. When sheâ€™s not writing, sheâ€™s probably engaged in one of her favorite hobbies: napping, eating, or martial arts (That last one almost makes up for the first two, right?). One of Allysonâ€™s greatest disappointments is living in a state that doesnâ€™t have any Cracker Barrels in it.
