About Alison

I read my first romance novel (a Harlequin Presents swiped from my grandmother) when I was twelve. I was instantly hooked and I spent the better part of every family vacation thereafter closed up in my room with Grandma’s Harlequin romances. My love affair with romance novels had to be a furtive one – my mother fought a losing battle to convince me that Little Women and The Secret Garden were all any girl needed for imaginative escape, and I got very, very good at quickly stuffing the romance under my pillow and pulling out something serious-looking as soon as I heard footsteps heading toward my room.

It wasn’t long before I started making up my own stories, but it took a while to get anything down on paper. My first attempts at writing came on a long business trip away from my husband, and I realised right away that writing romance was as addictive as reading it. I'm very excited to be writing for Mills & Boon.
