Alice G. May is a multi-tasking mother with four not-so-small children.

She is married to (probably) the most patient man on the planet and they live in what used to be a ramshackle old cottage in the New Forest.

Alice loves nothing more than to share her love of painting and writing with others.

In 2014, Alice's house started to fall down before her eyes.

What followed was an extraordinary journey that changed Alice's view of the world, and life in general, forever.

In 2016, following a 20 year career as a GP surgery manager, Alice changed direction to focus on writing and painting.

Inspired by true-life events ‘The House That Sat Down’ Trilogy wouldn’t leave her alone until it was written.
