I'm also known as: "Advice Sister Alison," and :Lace,: co-creator of The Advice Sisters® and the Leather and Lace Advice Websites. "The Advice Sisters®" are credited with bringing the advice/info-tainment genre, online 18 years ago. Leather and Lace Advice and Leather and Lace SPICE (relationship advice, but you have to be of legal age to enter as some of the content is not for younger people) are new, novel relationship advice websites with two views for every question or situation, that I've started with a new partner, Tony Sabatini. You really should check them out!

My writing has appeared in numerous print and virtual publications around the world. I've also done my share of public speaking, and I've been a featured guest on numerous radio and television shows.
