Allayne grew up in the coastal fishing town of Kingston SE, South Australia. She now lives in Adelaide with her husband and teenage son. She's the proud recipient of three South Australian Arts Grants and a Board Member of Adelaide's Salisbury Writers' Festival. She also helped to establish the Women's Professional Development Network Book Club at the University of Adelaide.
Allayne plays guitar, writes songs and loves to sing (when people want her to!) When not writing or singing, she's reading. Or buying books. Or fangirling authors. Or plotting her next novel. Or absent-mindedly indulging in cheese and wine whilst dreaming up characters and scenarios. Basically, she's obsessed with storytelling in the worst way. She's only marginally more obsessed with her husband (*whom she thinks is kind of cute.) Allayne is not a fan of housework. She believes in cleaning fairies.
