Alison Caiola's many years in Hollywood, first as a PR Executive and then as a writer, make her qualified to write about the entertainment industry and the behind-the-scenes craziness that it often spawns.

Like Daisy, the mother in The Seeds of a Daisy, her son JD Daniels is a successful and award-winning actor. Alison recently wrote, directed, and produced the television series The Tyme Chronicles. She currently resides on the beautiful North Fork of Long Island with her Malti-Poo daughter-dog Emma, surrounded by vineyards, farms, and wonderful friends.
