Allayne grew up in a coastal fishing town in rural South Australia. During her high school days, Allayne became of obsessed with Judy Blume. The only thing she wanted for her thirteenth birthday was the novel, ‘Are you there, God? It’s me, Margaret.’
As a teenager, Allayne wrote her first epic novel inside three 96 page lined workbooks. Kids in her class wanted to know, WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? Allayne’s lovely English teacher kindly edited her work even though it wasn’t related to the school curriculum. Ever so slowly, a writing monster was born.
Now Allayne writes because she can help herself. She talks about writing, dreams about writing and gravitates towards keyboards.
Allayne is a proud recipient of three South Australian Arts Grants. Her passions include chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate (did we mention chocolate?) And wine. And redheads.
