Authors, Poets, Presenters and Musicians
Alis Hawkins grew up on a dairy farm in Cardiganshire. She left to read English at Oxford and has done various things with her life, including bringing up two amazing sons, selling burgers, working with homeless people and helping families to understand their autistic children. And writing. Always. Her current historical crime series, featuring blind investigator Harry Probert-Lloyd and his chippy assistant John Davies, is set in the Teifi Valley. As a side-effect, instead of making research trips to sunny climes like some of her writer friends, she just drives up the M4 to see her folks.
Alis speaks Welsh, collects rucksacks and can't resist an interesting fact.
