Hi, I’m Alice.
I live in West Wales and I love to travel and explore – I’m my happiest when I’m immersed in the natural world (although I wouldn’t say no to putting my feet up with a glass of wine, either). I have a keen interest in astrology, spirituality, food, and music.
I’ve always had an insatiable love of the written word. I devoured books as a child, staying up late and leaning into my windowsill to read by moonlight so my parents wouldn’t see the telltale glow of my bedside lamp. I would bring a book everywhere with me, walking with my eyes glued to the page, sneaking my book to the dinner table so I could continue to read in between bites of lasagne, much to the bemusement of my family. I was lucky to grow up in a home with plenty of well stocked bookshelves, and my love of literature was encouraged and celebrated by my wonderful parents, big brother, grandparents, aunties, and uncles; I was never short of a kaleidoscopic supply of reading material.
As I grew up I continued to read and I also naturally began to write as well. I would conceive everything from poems to short fantasy stories to plays to diaries, most of which I’d throw away or delete soon after completing, but I felt I was honing my craft each time I sat at my Dad’s desktop or put pen to paper. The thousands of ways you can weave words to your will, like casting a spell, enthralled and fascinated me.
For my GCSE’s I took both English Language and English Literature, the latter I continued to study at A Level. I’m now undertaking a Masters Degree in Children’s Literature, coming full circle to the literary roots of my childhood and relishing every second of dissecting and exploring familiar and not-so-familiar tales.
As a freelancer I write music reviews on some of my favourite artists for on-trend online music magazine Giglist, book reviews for socially enterprising Bristol-based publisher Arkbound, and I also create online content for FBM Holidays, writing everything from blog posts about pumpkin picking to reviews of the best surfing spots in Pembrokeshire.
I’m available for commissions and one-off reviews, as well as being on hand for ongoing contractual content writing or reviewing work. Submissions are more than welcome!
