About Alison


Back in the 1970s, I completed one of the first Bachelor of Arts degrees in Professional Writing and then went on to qualify as a speech pathologist, working as a clinician and academic for over thirty years. As well as writing research-based book chapters and papers for international refereed journals, I’ve authored two scholarly books (published by Plural Publishing, and Palgrave Macmillan).  Recently retired, I am a Conjoint Professor in Speech Pathology at University of Newcastle, Australia and I am enjoying my long-standing fascination with story writing in both non-fiction and fiction.
