Alison Cochrun is a former high school English teacher and a current writer of queer love stories, including her debut novel, The Charm Offensive. She lives outside of Portland, Oregon with her giant dog and a vast collection of brightly colored books. She controversially believes evermore is the greatest Christmas album of all time, and she’s probably sitting by a window right now hoping for snow. You can find her online at Alisoncochrun.com or on Instagram and Twitter @alisoncochrun.
