Meet Allyson Olivia Ringgold


















Allyson Olivia Ringgold, a native of Baltimore, MD, currently resides in Miami, FL, where she works full-time as an analyst. Throughout her life she has always found comfort in writing. She started writing poetry and stories in elementary school because her imagination was too big to keep inside her mind. She pursued her interest in writing at Susquehanna University where she wrote for the school newspaper The Crusader and received a bachelor’s in mass communications. She continued to develop her craft at Syracuse University where she received a master’s in journalism. Throughout her life she has always written from her heart. She hopes when people read her fiction they will see something that reminds them of the truth. In her writing she unravels the issue of loving someone and living for God, and demonstrates the conflict that is caused when the two meet. She hopes her writing will captivate and inspire her readers to live and love her imagination.
