About the Geek

This is me being hip and cool. I tried my best.

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’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.

If, for some reason unknown to mankind, you want to know more about me as a person, you might wish to read on. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

Things I like include Homestuck, Harry Potter, The Hunger Games, Doctor Who, Tim Burton films, Keeping Up Appearances, BBC Sherlock, Edgar Allan Poe, ghostgirl, The Catcher in the Rye, art, playing piano, Lady Gaga, Evanescence, Natalia Kills, Paramore, ten jillion other music artists, Edward Gorey, Downton Abbey, corvids, chess, Scrabble, Trivial Pursuit, trivia in general, the Beka Cooper series, books in general, British culture, Latin, history, dancing, aquatic sports, cemetaries, going for walks in the woods, mythology, Chapstick, quoting things, coffee, tea, chocolate, Vlogbrothers, Victorian fashion, zombies, teen author success stories, random creepy stuff, fairy tales, Nutella, the Newport Mansions, hipster glasses, Prismacolor pencils, Smosh, steampunk, Skullcandy headphones, sarcasm, Shakespeare, fangirling with my girl friends, dorking out with my guy friends, Doc Martens, fancy leather bookmarks, coveting stuff on Etsy, dragons, Union Jacks, cacti, iTunes gift cards, eating, putting on completely ridiculous makeup, Sharpies, braids, biscotti, writing bad rhyming poetry for the heck of it, museums, concerts, plays, reading fashion magazines so I’m certain not to wear anything that’s in style, snail mail, black cats, autumn, winter, cheese, philately, garden gnomes, archaic and/or long words, typography, Calvin and Hobbes, traveling, rivers and bridges, walking through really fancy shops and pretending to be actually considering buying something, hair detangler, stripy socks, sausage and apples, astrology, Scottish plaids, messenger bags, Stonehenge, antique cars, embellished journals, real fireplaces, and LOTS of other stuff.

    Very Cool Blog Allegra, I have been reading and enjoying and will be back! Like you, our family are confirmed lovers of the physical old fashioned printed word, hard cover, soft cover, doesn’t matter and to be honest I don’t think that the magic and comfort of a storybook in bed with the kids cuddled around can easily be replaced by “ebook” or Kindle. ( well not in our house at least) Well done on some excellent writing!
    p.s. We don’t just love wind power we adore it! More on that in my blog soonest!

    Hello My name is Jacqueline and I’m from Canada. I have commented on your blog before but I didn’t introduce my self. I would just like to say that I have a pet named Hermione but mine is a cat. I also have a few questions that I ask you to reply to on my blog at My first question is how did you get the fact of the month and quote of the month widgets? My next question is, what is your Here’s To Us button for and you said to click on it and I clicked on it and nothing happened? My final question is, what is the weekly geeks and all the other directories for? Please answer every question you can.
    Thanks Jacqueline!

    Thanks Jacqueline!

    I’m impressed how many books you have read. Working with young teenagers I see students everyday that don’t read or even care about it. Keep it up. Cool site.

    I arrived here via your Freshly Pressed post, and I am surprised to learn that you are a teenager writing a novel. Good for you!
    Speaking of reality programming, I recommend watching “What Not To Wear” to help you with your fashion education.

    Sweet blog! Congrats on your success!
    I’m a teen, too, so seeing how successful you are now is inspirational! I hope I’ll read your novel in print (and not on an ebook) sometime 😀

    Loved the “America’s next top author” blog. True genius! 😀 I too love too read and as a teen i find your blog and the fact that your writing a novel very inspirational! Can’t wait to read it!! Will be back to check out future posts, (also its nice to see that there are other sane people in the world who are against the literature technology uprising, paper back and hardcover still the way to go!! :D)

    Rargh! I love your blog (have I said that yet?) but as you said you’d never seen Doctor Who, I thought I should help you before this dreaded disease spreads any further.

    Here is the cure: 777 episodes (once you get past the black and white it’s much better) in just over 5 minutes, and I think it’s worth it.

    In return, I’ll check out those books some time! 😀
