About Allison

I am not afraid to correct grammar. It's in my nature and is what keeps my eyes darting back-and-forth across the page or computer screen. Most eyes simply glance over the words because we are taught as children that all you need to know is the first and last letter to complete a word. My eyes don't glance, they investigate.

It makes a smile appear from one side of my face to the next and gets my heart racing to know that I've helped maintain proper English grammar.
