Alison Miller Woods


Alison is a Professor of Physiology and a mother to six who lives with her family in the shadows of the Wasatch mountain range. She loves mountains, Halloween, lightning, purple, reading, video games, and is embarrassingly overenthusiastic about all things that can be marketed as “Geek” or “Kawaii.” She also really loves mythology and fairy tales and is extremely excited to be involved in the Fairy Tale StoryVerse. She won the 2017 Utah Division of Arts and Museums’ Original Writing Competition (young adult category). Magic exists throughout our world and within you!
