Allison T. Williams
I cover government and courts for Isle of Wight County, as well as agriculture, at the Daily Press.
I grew up in Suffolk, where I still live today, and have degrees in English and journalism from Radford University. With the exception of a few years, I've spent most of my career writing for community-focused newspapers in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia.
I will read anything - newspapers, novels, the backs of cereal boxes in a pinch. I collect early-edition children's books and like digging around the garden, live music, the beach, dogs, sailing (though I'm still a novice) and exploring new, quirky places.
