Thursday's Author

Allison Burnett is one of those writers who creates magic with his work. His novels Undiscovered Gyrl, The House Beautiful, and the award winning Christopher have given Allison a legion of devoted fans. With a flair that is unique and extremely original, this is an author who creates a whole world around his characters; a world readers don't mind diving into each time a new Burnett title arrives on the scene.

Allison is also a talented screenwriter. He wrote the film remake of Fame, which was a box office hit, as well other movies like Untraceable, The Feast of Love, Resurrecting the Champ, and Autumn in New York. Some of Hollywood's biggest stars have spoken Allison's lines; Morgan Freeman, Richard Gere, and Diane Lane just to name a few.

Having been acquainted with Allison for a few years now, we exchange emails now and then, and do the Facebook thing too, but I consider myself a fan of his as much as he is a friend of mine. The guy is a real dynamo. Just pick up one of his books and you'll realize the genius that has made him so successful.
