Allison Meldrum

Writing has been Allison’s career and passion for twenty years. After graduating with an MA in English Literature from The University of Edinburgh, Allison’s professional writing journey began in news and feature journalism, where she has built a significant portfolio of published work across local, national, and digital media.

Since turning her attention to her first and true love of fiction writing, Allison’s short stories have been published online on EastofTheWeb and Toasted Cheese where her debut short story, ‘The Reunion’ was selected as Editor’s Pick in March 2021. She also contributed works to the first anthology from Authors Without Borders,’ Tolerance: A Collection of Short Stories’, and is currently working on her debut novel ‘The Debt’.

Allison has a specialist interest in the genres of Domestic Suspense and Mystery. She has also been a guest contributor on several parenting blogs, including BritMums as well as regularly writing for her own blog:
