About Alice

As an author of fiction, Alice enjoys writing of all kinds, particularly short stories; it helps that she has beautiful handwriting and lots of nice stationery.

Her writing is inspired by early twentieth-century literature, and often explores themes of family relationships and moral conundrums. Having spent over a decade working as a musician her work often features musical characters or, occasionally, their instruments.

Alice achieved her first fiction publication in 2016, since when eight of her short stories have been published either online and in print. She has recently released a third collection of short stories on Kindle.

She has attended courses with novellists Sue Johnson, and Debrah Martin, author Mark Lewis, and in February 2018 attended a writing retreat with author and coach Stephanie Butland.

Alice is Operations Director for Oxford Writers House, and since its inception in 2016 has run Didcot Writers, organising development events and workshops for local writers and authors. In 2018 she will be editing a collection of short stories by various authors, The Most Normal Town in England.


Reviews

I loved these brilliant, jewel-like stories; I know that I shall still be thinking about them, days after reading them.
- Rachel Waters, November 2017, on the anthology 'Last Worshipper at the Shrine'

A really entertaining read and a good varied range of stories... covering a range of styles and moods from black comedy to lighter humour, with some twists en route. Some will make you think, some might bring you up in surprise. I was left wanting to read more.
- Mike Evis, October 2017, on the anthology 'The Morning After'

You got me hooked and left me wanting more!
- Maggie Elliott, June 2017, on the short story 'June' now available as part of an anthology

As usual, your attention to the small details is what sells this... you have a great way with words and some fabulous ideas.
- Fiona Clegg, April 2016, on the short story 'Inside Outside', published in the collection Inside Out in July 2018
