Allison Winn Scotch is an American published author.

She was born on June 12, 1973. She grew up in Virginia, spending a normal childhood in Charlottesville. She would also then later move to Seattle. There she may have stood out slightly with her bit of a Southern drawl but fit in well with the gray skies there and the abundance of flannel.

Allison’s mother worked as a teacher and would encourage her children to read often. She would even mail vocabulary words to her daughter at her summer camp in the mail. The author thinks that her active imagination and these early forays into literature played into her belief that in the future she might be able to write fiction professionally.

Allison attended the University of Pennsylvania, graduating cum laude with her Bachelor of the Arts in the subject of honors history. She also attended the Wharton School of Business, where she received a Concentration in Marketing. She enjoys going on the computer and going online as well as other hobbies that include activities such as doing yoga, running, hiking, reading, listening to music, or spending time with her family and pets.

The writer has worked in other fields when it comes to writing besides being a novelist. She worked as a magazine writer on a freelance basis, composing articles on a variety of subjects. She also composed celebrity profiles in the hundreds, which she enjoyed doing and met some great people along the way. While she was doing this, she was able to set aside little pieces of time to use to write a novel. While it wasn’t her best book, she resolved to write another and it was much better.

She has written articles and content for publications such as Woman’s Day, Parents, Women’s Health, Men’s Health, Shape, Self, Redbook, Prevention, InStyle Weddings, Glamour, and Family Circle. She is married to her husband and they have children (and pets) together.

Scotch lost a very close friend to the fight of breast cancer. Once that happened, she wanted to write her own story that had an ending that was happier. While the character of Natalie and her young friend do not have carbon copy similarities, she wanted to portray the courage and spirit of her friend while facing down a horrible illness through the novel.

Her novel The Theory of Opposites has been optioned for development.

The main character in this story is named Natalie Miller. She’s a young woman at thirty years old that appears to have everything in the world that someone could want. She’s great at her job and uses her determination and ambition to move herself further and further up that political ladder. She works as an aide to a female senator in New York.

Part of her job is that she works a lot. She works hard and long days and stays late, really enjoying every aspect of it. Perhaps the bills that go through don’t improve the constituents of the senator’s lives, but that doesn’t change the fact that she likes her job. She’s in a relationship with her boyfriend, and he might not be the most handsome man on Earth, but it’s nice to have someone there.

However, she’s blindsided when she gets two very big pieces of news, and one is significantly worse than the other. Her boyfriend tells her that he’s leaving her, and that’s not great. But her doctor confirms that she has breast cancer, and that’s the real deal breaker that is ruining her day and potentially her life.

But making new choices may lead to new consequences and not be as simple as it appears. Jillian starts to find out that a happy ending in life may be more involved than she thought.
