Alison June Owings, daughter of Kenneth Brown Owings and Alice Case Roberts Owings, was raised in East Orange and Chatham, New Jersey, and Strafford, Pennsylvania. She received a BA in journalism from the American University in Washington, DC, and worked for several television news stations, including ABC in Washington, DC, WRC in Washington, WNBC in New York, and CBS TV. She is the author of four books, The Wander Woman's Phrasebook: How to Meet or Avoid People in Three Romance Languages (1987), Frauen: German Women Recall the Third Reich (1993), Hey, Waitress! The USA from the Other Side of the Tray (2002), and Indian Voices: Listening to Native Americans (2011).
