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 fifteen of her short stories have been published by various outlets in print and online. In addition to this, she has self-published three collections of short stories.

She has attended courses with novellists Stephanie Butland, Deborah Bosley, Sue Johnson, and author Mark Lewis, and herself runs events and training to support authors: Alice is Operations Director for Oxford Writers House, and runs Didcot Writers.

In 2018 she made her debut as an editor, working on two collections of short stories by various authors: The Most Normal Town in England, and Compositions: short stories on the theme of music.


Reviews

I loved these brilliant, jewel-like stories; I know that I shall still be thinking about them, days after reading them.
- Rachel Waters, 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, on the anthology 'The Morning After'

You got me hooked and left me wanting more!
- Maggie Elliott, 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, on the short story 'Inside Outside', published in the collection Inside Out in July 2018
