Alison Henderson

I grew up in Kansas City on the edge of the prairie, the product of a long line of pioneering women.  One grandmother was born in Broken Bow, Nebraska, and the other majored in physical education in college – an eccentric choice for a woman in the ‘twenties. 

Like any pioneer, I’ve always been intrigued by new places and experiences.  I went off to New York to study art history at Vassar College, and by the time I was twenty-one I had traveled the world from Japan to Tunisia.  

Unlike many writers, I didn’t always have the writing bug.  I was bitten when I temporarily quit work to stay home after my daughter was born.  I’ve always been an avid reader and decided to try my hand at writing the kind of stories I loved.  After many months of typing away during naptime and pre-school, the first manuscript was born.  And quickly died.  But it was followed by another and then another.  I was hooked on the creative process. 

Today, my husband and I are empty-nesters living in Minnesota, and our daughter is a graduate student in Chicago.  Like most of you, I spend my days up to my elbows in the mundane requirements of life, but later I shed that skin and slip into the magical world of imagination.  I hope you’ll join me.
