At the beginning of December 2013, Alison sat down at her computer and started typing. She had a story in her head that insisted on being released. Four months later she had written her first novel, a romance thriller called Roses. Since then Alison has released several more books.
Her credentials? She doesn't have a degree in writing, and her first job was with the Australian Army Reserve. She left the Reserves to enlist in the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF). Alison's time in the Australian Defence Forces left her with a passion for all things military and law enforcement related. She draws on her experiences for inspiration when writing her stories.
