Jennifer Allison grew up in a small town in Michigan. One of her best friends lived on a sheep farm, and the two girls found the spooky atmosphere of the barn hayloft to be perfect for séances. As it turned out, the experience was also perfect inspiration for a novel about a thirteen-year-old psychic investigator.

Ms. Allison holds a B.A. from the University of Michigan and an M.F.A. from American University. Her various careers have included work as a news reporter and high school English teacher. She has also held numerous odd jobs - piano player in a shopping mall, assembly-line worker for General Motors, waitress, preschool teacher - that have helped her generate ideas for characters and stories. Jennifer Allison currently lives in Washington, D.C., with her husband, Michael, and their three children - Max, and the twins, Marcus and Genevieve ("Gigi").
