Alison McLennan was a terrible creative writer as a child but an enthusiastic volunteer in her school library. After studying journalism and then working in PR/media, Alison returned to creative writing while raising her family. When not writing children’s books, she’s busy prancing on the stage in musical theatre productions, singing with her children’s band Allioopsy, working as a voice-over artist, or curled up reading a book with her cat Honey.
