About Author Alison Lloyd

If you love

thoughtful writing but not bleak endings

plot twists and moments of lyrical prose

in stories that take you out of your everyday

then Alison Lloyd is writing for you.

Alison Lloyd writes history with heart – thoughtful, evocative historical fiction about the lives of women, with a dash of romance, adventure, humour and hope. She loves rich, accurate historical detail.

Alison writes to show that life is good and meaningful, as well as flawed and painful. The love and loveliness, and even the hurts of this world, point us toward something, Someone, more. Although she doesn’t write Christian fiction, to her, Jesus’ redeeming death and life is the greatest story ever.

Alison has won and been shortlisted for several awards. She had ten books for children published. See them all at her kids website here. She won the 2019 NSW Premier’s History Award for her children’s book The Upside-Down History of Downunder.

Before becoming an author, Alison worked for Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. She now lives in Melbourne, Australia, home of Gold Rush grandeur. She aspires to living in a Victorian mansion, but is currently happy creating one in her head, for her novel in progress.

Alison loves most things ancient and antique. She also loves a long walk through bush or beach, growing flowers and ferns, and great conversation with friends and family.
