MisCon 32 Panel Volunteer
Alyson Peterson lives in a mountainside gully—of all places—in northern Utah with her neurotic, shed-tastic dog, two ninja kids, and superhero husband. She spends her time studying martial arts, weapons and reads...a LOT. She teaches Story Structure and Character Development to teens across the country and was an adjunct professor at BYU. She has three traditionally published books and feels she's just begun her writing journey!
