Much like the main characters in her novels, Allison M. Boot, has a disability. She wrote Just the Way You Are and The Magic Within to spread messages of self-acceptance and equality to young boys and girls traveling paths similar to hers. She is very proud to say that she earned a Master of Arts in Mass Communication from the University of Dayton. Additionally, she is proud of her extensive troll doll collection, started at the tender age of three, after being told that trolls bring good luck. To this day, her collection continues to grow and do just that. While she enjoys being a daughter to 2 and sister to 11, it is being an auntie to 12 and a dog mom to 2 that she loves most. She relocated to Urbana, Illinois where she lives with her husband, Dylan, a few years ago. Since relocating to Illinois, Allison has been blessed to become a member of the Alliance for Inclusion & Respect (AIR), the Illinois Association of People Supporting Employment First (APSE), The Champaign-Urbana Disability Resource Expo Steering Committee, and the Illinois Statewide Independent Living Council (SILC)
