About Alison Lloyd

Alison Lloyd is an Australian children's writer. She writes fiction and non-fiction. Her books are about China and Australia's past.

Alison grew up in Canberra. She was also lucky to live in Europe and Asia when she was a kid. She studied in China for two years - she was in that country when army tanks rolled onto the city streets, to put down the student movement in 1989.

Before she wrote books, Alison worked for the Australian Government, in the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. But she has sworn, under the Official Secrets Act, not to tell everything that went on then...

Alison now lives in Melbourne with two kids, her husband and enough books to keep you reading for a hundred years.
