Born and raised in Burnley, Alison has dreamed of becoming a writer ever since reading Harriet the Spy by torchlight under the bedcovers, aged about eight.
After completing a degree in Social Policy, Alison lived in Crete and spent time in the Middle and Far East. In the mid-nineties she was a keen supporter of the free party network. She has worked in a variety of jobs but after being sacked once too often for gross insubordination, Alison decided to heed the words of one employer who described her as ‘unmanageable’, and became a full time writer.
Alison now lives in Leeds with her partner and two children. She spends her days arguing about whose turn it is to sort out the washing, and her evenings at the computer, sipping mint tea and plotting her revenge. Our Father (Who Art Out There, Somewhere) is Alison’s first novel.
