Alicia grew up in Wollombi, a little village two hours drive north of Sydney. Her twenties were spent travelling the world, working in London, and leading adventure tours in the Middle East and China with an international tour company. She returned to Australia in 1998 and started a business providing bookkeeping, book editing and photographic services. In 2000 she set up efolio Pty Limited from which she now consults and promotes her work.
Always looking for ways to focus on the things she loves doing, Alicia took time off work to improve her writing skills through a program of reading and short courses. This culminated in completing her Masters in Creative Writing at the University of Technology, Sydney in 2014.
Over the winter of 2021 Alicia will be working with NineStar Press on the editing and production of her forthcoming novel, Something Else (working title). The estimated release is for October 2021.
After this, she will return to work on a third draft of an earlier novel that deserves to be written.
