Alison Layland is a writer and translator. She has been telling herself stories for as long as she can remember and now writes them down for others to share.

Her debut novel, Someone Else’s Conflict, is a psychological thriller about a roving storyteller who hides a dark past. Switching between the idyllic Yorkshire Dales and the gritty reality of Northern towns, with a backdrop of the 1990s war in Croatia, it is a compelling narrative of trust and betrayal, love, loyalty and honour.

Raised in Newark and Bradford, Alison now lives in mid-Wales with her husband and two teenage children.
