About the Geek
The name’s Davis–Allegra Davis. I’m a teen writer and the author of various and sundry stories, poems, and bits of flash fiction; a piece of macabre fiction of mine appeared in Black Lantern Publishing. I’m also currently editing my first novel, a young adult fantasy. On August 12, 2011, my post“America’s Next Top Author (and other fantasy programs for book lovers)” was featured on WordPress.com’s homepage as Freshly Pressed. I’m also one of the co-hosts of Teens Can Write Too!, a rapidly growing blog and inter-blog chain in support of teen writing and co-editor of The Trivial Typewriter. If you must know, I live in the United States. I tweet @ThatAllegraD.
