Allison Bially lives in San Diego with her husband and 15-year-old daughter. Her 18-year-old son is moving out, and Allison is completely fine with that. Really, she is. Writing down life’s absurdities got her through breast cancer, so she’s pretty sure it’ll help as she faces the prospect of an empty nest. Allison’s full-time job and other passion is energy efficiency and distributed energy. She likes to exercise, enjoys a good hike, and loves non-pandemic travel.
