Alison Woods founded Mirror Image Books in 2018. A retired IT executive, Woods always had a passion for two things: telling stories and reading books. She took that passion and her desire to see African American children as the main characters in picture books and created Mirror Image. But the real inspiration for writing her books came from her oldest granddaughter, Kayla. Her annual summer visits and the bedtime storytelling convinced Woods that she had to write!
She is the author of My Name is Kayla – the first book in the KaylaKay series. The second book in the series – On Sundays, We Go to Church – will be released in the Summer of 2021. We Are Happy is the first book in the Two Too Terrific Series and will be released in the Spring of 2021. The KareemJay series for boys, also by Woods, will release its first book in the late Fall of 2021 - My Name is Kareem. Woods is currently working with two other authors to get their works published.
