About Alison Campbell

I have three true passions in this life:
I am an information sponge. I love to learn and - just as eagerly - love to grow.
I am enchanted by words and have always written - even as a young child I was a poet.
I want to help other people to expand themselves - nurturing is a big part of who I am.

It's an inevitable then, that I should find myself after years of nursing, home educating and running a dog care business, considering ever-increasingly, that what I am, is an author. Inevitable also, that by far the majority of what I write is non-fiction expansion material. Currently this centres very much around rats, dogs and running a small business. I also - in my best moments - am still a poet.

My life is currently very fluid. I do own a house in the UK, which is currently rented, and at the moment I live in my motorhome, usually somewhere in the North of England. I did this to escape the treadmill we all so easily slip onto in this busy life, and to apply the principles of minimalism and essentialism to my life. Although I still run the dog care business from wherever I am, and still do some hands-on work in that regard, most of my work time is now taken up with writing. If not writing, you might find me cooking, walking, enjoying the people I love, in an atmospheric pub drinking whisky or real ale, watching Liverpool play, listening to Audible or helping out on my sister's smallholding.

The Scuttling Gourmet is a brilliant book, had the hard copy for a few years now, and dip in and out of it regularly, full of useful information. My rats also adore the Liver Biscuit recipe, they wait excitedly for a little piece of it every morning. Thank you Alison.

This book is one of my most useful tools when deciding what my rats need in their diet. This newer edition will help me improve their diet even more. My rats are very thankful. A book for every pet rat owner.

I've already got the third edition of this book in print, and having just had a quick look through the new updated version, it's very well written with easy to follow information on the dietary needs of our little furry friends. For those of us lucky enough to be enslaved by these amazing little animals it's an absolute must have. It's really useful to have it in an electronic form as it means when I'm in the shop, having forgotten what I went in for, I've got a list of ingredients for a variety of recipes with me at all times.

Fantastically written. Great information for any fancy rat (s) owner.
Easy to read, and available in great formats too.
I downloaded the kindle edition. And the pdf (so I'm able to print it for my own reference)
