An award winning poet and author, P.I. Alltraine spends her days teaching English Language and Literature in London. She has a degree in English from Queen Mary University, London and a post graduate in Teaching and MA from the UCL, also in London.

Her poems Kites and The Gift have appeared in separate anthologies and she has won several poetry competitions. A video of her spoke word poem ‘Unmoving’ is available from Spoken Word Revolution.

The author spent a lot of time in the Philippines where she was ensconced in a world of dark myths and enchanted tales – traces of this young adult learning can be found in her fantasy writing. Although she has moved around and experienced a number of different cultures in doing so, she has always enjoye

Writing has always been something that I’ve done naturally. I was the editor in chief of the school paper so I edited and wrote news articles, I wrote and performed school plays, I entered poetry writing competitions, I wrote the speeches I delivered in oratorical competitions, declamation, debates, etc. At the time, I thought I was doing so many different things, but looking back, everything that I chose to do involved writing. However, I wrote a novel not necessarily intending to publish it or make a career out of writing. I wrote it because there was a story I needed to tell. (less)

Hi Zara. Thank you for your questions. Yes, I’ve read Woolf’s ‘Mrs Dalloway’. Though Joyce and Woolf are two of my favourite writers, I’m not a massive fan of Modernist Literature. Perhaps, it’s because I don’t have much patience for “stream of consc See Full Answer

“This thought, this truth, it highlighted the distance between us. We lived in different timeframes. A reminder that, even right now, we didn't share the same moments. We could never truly be together.”
P.I. Alltraine , Heartbound

“I wanted her to notice me, to pay attention to me. It was an irrational desire, one I‘d never experienced before.”
P.I. Alltraine, Heartbound

“I wanted so much from her. I wanted her to help me understand the erratic and irrational way she made me feel. I wanted her to tell me why I could hardly breathe. I felt like I was drowning every time I saw her, yet I refused to look away. I wanted her to smile at me. I wanted her to keep me a prisoner of her captivating eyes for a little longer. I wanted her to lean closer to me for reasons I couldn't comprehend. I wanted her to stay here with me even though she made me so dangerously weak. I wanted so much from her, but more than anything, I wanted to know her.”
P.I. Alltraine, Heartbound
