Hello, I’m AlisonB

I’m a former journalist who has worked on regional newspapers as a Features Editor, Health Editor and Features Writer.

After my second daughter was born, I decided to adjust my work/life balance and since then I’ve worked as a freelance writer, mainly for the NHS.

I am married and we have two girls, who (I can hardly believe it!) are now 10 and almost 12. Where did that time go?

We’ve also had a recent addition to our family, an impossibly cute Coton de Tulear puppy called Monty!

Pre-children, I loved going to the theatre and concerts, travelling, reading (I’m a member of a Book Group) and getting out and about as much as possible.

As my girls have grown, it has been fabulous to see them beginning to share some of these interests, as well as developing plenty of their own. Whoever knew Minecraft could be so addictive?

We are a pretty outdoorsy family and are always on the lookout for new activities to enjoy and places to explore – especially if they are dog-friendly!

But we also enjoy nothing better than to snuggle up in front of Strictly with a big bowl of Nachos on a Saturday evening.

And me? Well, if I manage to sneak in a tall latte and an almond croissant once in a while, I’m happy.


Please don’t hesitate to get in touch and say hello.
