ABOUT ALISON BURKE
I was born in Lancashire and I started my career by training as a State Registered general nurse, and progressed to midwifery. Later, I joined the Army and became an officer in the QARANC (Queen Alexandra’s Royal Army Nursing Corps). On a posting to Malaya, now Malaysia, I found my true love. This was an ideal setting for marriage with young children, and now my memories are a wonderfully rich source of material for my writing.
