Allyson Roy translates into Alice & Roy, husband and wife collaborating authors. Roy, a graduate of the University Of The Arts in Philadelphia, has a background in theater, art and standup comedy. Alice, dancer/choreographer/teacher, double majored in dance and philosophy at the State University of New York. They spent many gypsy years living and working in the different neighborhoods of New York City and Philadelphia. Aside from being marriage and writing partners, they are also best friends, which is reflected in the heartfelt, go-the-distance friendship of their two main characters.
Allyson Roy’s website
Three dead fashion models. A womanizing agent on the hunt for virgin talent. A daredevil boxer turned high-rise window washer. A burned out porn actress with a grudge. A pretty boy Irish illegal who’s good with a knife. A world famous lawyer with a bad case of self-importance.
It would all be just another tabloid headline to Saylor Oz — except the young Nuyorican artist wrongly convicted of the killings is the brother of Benita Morales, her best friend.
Height-challenged, warmhearted oddball, Saylor Oz, is convinced someone is reenacting murders from an old, X-rated movie called Bad, Bad Babydoll. But no one else thinks so, not even the sexy PI on the case. In her hunt to find the killer, Saylor ends up being part of a young genius designer’s zany plan to tweak the fashion world — and becomes the killer’s next target.
“Babydoll is a fast, fun read with action that never stops. Allyson Roy is a future star.”
—New York Times bestselling author Karen Robards
“Gripping . . . fun . . . exciting . . . hard to put down . . . comparable to Janet Evanovich’s Stephanie Plum novels (with) a bit more substance and more going for it . . . a sure-to-be successful series”
” . . . will leave you breathless. I would recommend this to any hip, modern adult who likes thrilling rides, hot men, and women who know how to hold their own.”
— Front Street Reviews
” . . . fast paced . . . laugh out loud escapades.”
