Alison May was born and raised in North Yorkshire, but now lives in Worcester with one husband, no kids and no pets. There were goldfish once. That ended badly.
Alison has studied History and Creative Writing, and has worked as a waitress, a shop assistant, a learning adviser, an advice centre manager, and a freelance trainer, before settling on 'making up stories' as an entirely acceptable grown-up career plan.
Alison is a member of the Society of Authors and the Romantic Novelists' Association, and won the Elizabeth Goudge Trophy in 2012. Her novella, Cora's Christmas Kiss was shortlisted in the Love Stories Awards, 2015, and for the RoNA Rose, 2016.
Alison writes contemporary romantic comedies, and short stories. Find out more about her at www.alison-may.co.uk
