Alison Knight

Alison was born in London.  She has been a lawyer, a child-minder and a professional fundraiser.  She went to university at the age of forty-five, gaining a first class degree in Creative Writing at Bath Spa University and an MA with Merit at Oxford Brookes University while continuing to work full-time for an overseas development charity. Rosie Goes To War is the first time-slip adventure featuring Rosie and her eccentric family.  She began writing it while studying with award-winning writer Steve Voake .  She was inspired by family stories of life in the Blitz, and her own daughter’s lack of interest in history.  Writing this story was so much fun, Alison is now planning a series of adventures for Rosie and her eccentric family
