Author A to Z

Alison May was born and raised in North Yorkshire, but now lives in Worcester with one husband, no kids and no pets. There were goldfish once. That ended badly.

Alison has studied History at the University of York, and worked as a waitress, a shop assistant, a learning adviser, an advice centre manager, and a freelance trainer, before settling on ‘making up stories’ as an entirely acceptable grown-up career plan.

A member of the Romantic Novelists’ Association since 2011, and the 2012 winner of the Elizabeth Goudge Trophy, Alison has a degree in Creative Writing, and now writes edgy romantic comedies.
