Alice Raine was born in London and educated in Manchester, but now spends her time in the sleepy English countryside, walking her dogs, working at her local fire station as an on-call firefighter, and of course, writing. Alice lives with her hugely supportive partner, their two dogs and a cranky cat who keeps the whole household on its toes.
Childhood was one long made-up story for Alice, with days often spent creating stories in her head. Mundane car journeys turned into a voyage of a secret stow away hidden under a blanket, and climbing a tree would become the challenge of scaling the wall of a magical castle.
Originally qualified as an archaeologist, Alice soon realised that jobs in this sector were minimal and moved into the teaching sector. After teaching for many years, Alice has now adjusted her enthusiasm into helping others and works as an on-call firefighter in her spare time, a job she absolutely loves, especially when she gets to drive the big red trucks!
Music is a huge influence in Alice's writing, she listens to everything from Snow Patrol and Linkin Park to Evanescence and REM.
Alice enjoys writing a wide range of genres including comical real life stories and youth paranormal fantasy, but her first published novels are the adult-themed series Untwisted.
