Biography: Allie Reynolds was once a freestyle snowboarder in the UK top ten at halfpipe. She spent five winters in the mountains of France, Switzerland, Austria and Canada.

She's had many jobs including nanny, barmaid, London primary school teacher, bookshop assistant and French teacher/translator. In 2003, she swapped her snowboard for a surfboard and moved to Gold Coast Australia, where she taught English as a foreign language for fifteen years. 

Allie became a full-time writer in 2018. Her short fiction has been published in women's magazines in the UK, Australia, Sweden and South Africa. She has two young children and a cat who thinks he's a dog.

Her debut novel, SHIVER, will be published in the UK and US in early 2021, and in twelve languages that same year.
