Ally was born in London but grew up in Suffolk which is where most of her YA Fantasy novels are based.

She is happily married to her high school sweetheart, and together they are raising two cats, their son and daughter.

When Ally is not writing (or at her day job), she loves spending time with her family at the local beach, in the forest or watching way too much Netflix.

Ally loves a cup of tea and has been known to order one on a night out.

Sometimes it’s because you need a break and other times it’s because you need to do some research. Don’t place restrictions on yourself, if you’re excited to write the fight scene at the end of the book, you can write it first and then fill in the gaps leading up to the scene. Having an outline can also help you know what you need to cover but don’t be afraid to change the plan. (less)

Don’t worry if it’s rubbish, that’s what editing is for. Don’t beat yourself up if you need a break. A novel is a long haul goal, not a quick sprint. (less)

"Hi, you may be wondering why I am leaving a review for my own book! I’m not writing this because I think my book is particularly revolutionary or that it is perfection in book form. In fact, I know about a thousand ways I’d like to improve the story!" Read more of this review »
