Alison Sweeney first gained recognition as a recurring character on "Days Of Our Lives," and went on to become a director for "DOOL" and "General Hospital," as well as the host of "the Biggest Loser." In 2013, Sweeney made her Hallmark Channel debut in the film "Second Chances," and went on to star in over a dozen programs.
Sweeney has since broken into a field besides showbiz. She published her first novel, "The Star Attraction," in 2013, followed by 2014's "Scared Scriptless" and 2016's "Opportunity Knocks"; the actor-turned-novelist bases her books on her own personal experiences with Hollywood and the people who work there.
At age 27, Sweeney published an autobiography, "All The Days of My Life (So Far)," covering her early days on the soap opera. Nine years later, she co-wrote the book "The Mommy Diet" offers post-pregnancy tips and advice for new moms; Sweeney has said of her spin-off career, "there's something so satisfying about telling stories."
