“I tell stories, through writing and documentaries, to find the extraordinary in the everyday.”
Alison has been a writer and filmmaker since graduating from a history degree at the University of Sheffield. She trained as a script editor with the Script Factory in London whilst working in film drama, before moving into TV documentary production, working on programmes for the BBC, Channel 4 and Sky.
After turning her focus back to creative writing, Alison’s first novel was long listed for the Lucy Cavendish Fiction Prize 2020 and she was chosen for a place on the Faber Academy’s Writing A Novel course (6 months).
She lives in Cambridge with her husband and two daughters and is working on her next novel.
