Hi, I’m Alison Gresik. I write for money and pleasure, and I coach writers and artists to design art-committed lives. I love exploring the world with my husband and our two firecracker children. At the moment, my home is in Vancouver, BC, Canada, but for one glorious year, I had no fixed address.

Pilgrimage of Desire is a memoir of my family’s year of full-time travel in 2011-12, set against the backdrop of my recovery from depression. It’s the story of how I learned to leave behind sanctioned concrete and follow my own desire lines.

I am self-publishing this beautifully designed book in digital and limited-edition print versions.
