Allyson Faith – Hey there, I’m the author behind ‘Ships and Silhouettes’.

I've dreamed of being an author ever since I was a little girl, and I pursued my passion for writing through earning a BA in English Language Arts at the University of North Texas. My studies also led me to become a certified teacher, which further fueled my love of telling stories.

With the release of Ships and Silhouettes, I'm embarking on an exciting new chapter as a published author. My goal is to transport readers to vivid lands filled with riveting adventures. If I can leave a lasting impact through my imaginative tales, then I'll feel I've succeeded in following my dreams. I aspire to be remembered one day as one of the greatest fantasy writers of my generation. This is just the beginning of my literary voyage!
