About Ali

I’m an author (of both fiction and non-fiction) and a freelancer, and though you’ll find me writing for a lot of the biggest writing blogs out there, Aliventures is my homebase online where I share articles on the art, craft and business of writing.

I live in Leeds (UK) with my husband and two kids, and I have degrees in English (MA Cantab, from Cambridge University) and Creative & Life Writing (MA, from Goldsmiths College, University of London).
