- Will have books on them. And even more at home. They will have almost enough books to form their own personal library. It will be clear from their conversation they love reading books which cover a wide range of topics. And their collection of spell books will be second to none.

I'm Allison Symes and I write novels, short stories as well as some scripts and poems.

Eileen is huge fun to write for and about.
