About

Alyson Madden-Brooker

I was born a good bit before the Internet was invented: I’m not old though, just very nicely experienced. As a teenager, I used to write stories which reflected an early literary diet of science fiction and fantasy. I did this on an actual typewriter (yes, a real one and I even learned to touch-type) before some bright spark invented computers. Then life got in the way and I stopped my stories for a long, long time.

Eventually inspired by the possibilities thrown up by of digital publishing, I joined a local writing club and rather nervously and slowly started writing quaint little stories about demons, usually with soul-stealing character defects. One day, just for a change, I sat at my desk and started writing about an angel. Having crossed over to the ‘other side’ (sort of) I suddenly found I couldn’t stop and now plan many new books.

I won’t hide that I am a transgender woman, and many of my characters inhabit the LGBT space. Don’t let that put you off, please. I do like to think that my books can be read by everyone, however they define themselves. Yes, many of my female characters are gay, but please remember that they reflect real people in our society.  The Forgotten Wings series is modern, magical fantasy: there is action, adventure, excitement, and of course, some romance (and the truest essence of romance is utterly blind to our supposed ‘differences’).
