Alison G. Thompson is an Oxford, MS native and a graduate of the University of Mississippi and the University of Memphis, respectively. She developed her love for reading from her mother at a young age. There was always an Eric Jerome Dickey or a Terry McMillan book on her mother’s nightstand or workbag. As Alison evolved, not only did she discover her passion for reading, but her teachers, Mrs. Miller and Dr. Lowe assisted her in finding her voice through writing and speaking.
Alison is the owner and head creator of Greenline Creative, LLC. Their mission is to amplify the Black voice and to hold space for the Black protagonists. In 2021, Alison and her son, Lucas, co-authored their first book entitled, Super Lucas. They strive to encourage everyone to use their super powers to make the world a better place. A year later, Alison and her daughter Aria published Twos with Tootie. It is a celebration of all things two for terrific two- year- olds!
Knowing the alarming literacy rates of black children, Alison is an advocate for Black literacy. She is also committed to Leaving a Legacy in a Book as a deposit for future generations to keep dreaming and keep creating.

"Any book that helps a child to form a habit of reading, to make reading one of his deep and continuing needs, is good for him."
