Alice has questions. Lots of them. Scheming to put fictional characters through the muck so they can get to a better place helps her find answers. Thankfully, the questions never end. She writes stories about people finding themselves and falling in love because doing so feels like healing. She shares them with the hope that others might find some healing too.

Alice has messed about with words professionally for many years as an editor and writing coach. She's pretty much drenched in words from dawn to dusk (and there are ink stains on the bedding).

After living in more than eighty places and cobbling together a portable lifestyle, she has a lot of story material to sort through. It has reassured her to discover that even though cultural differences get people into a peck of trouble when they’re falling in love, the human heart can find its way in any language.
