Hi there! My name is Alison Hickling, and I am a writer living on the Sunshine Coast in Australia. I completed a Bachelor of Creative Writing from the University of the Sunshine Coast in 2016, and I write in the romance genre; contemporary and supernatural are my favs!
I’m also a copy editor and proofreader for corporate businesses, academics and researchers. I love this kind of work because I enjoy the structure and rules, which leaves me with more brain power to be creative in my own work.
In December 2016 I gave birth to a beautiful baby boy, and 2017 was an incredible learning curve! Now, in 2018, I am back at university undertaking my honours year in Creative Writing, and I try to balance my time between writing, editing, being a mum and spending time doing things I love like going to the gym, cooking and being with my husband.
Many posts on here are quite dated now, but moving forward I plan to update the site regularly with my thoughts on the writing process, motherhood, and anything else that springs to my mind!
