Natalie Allan was born in the West Midlands, England, where she currently resides with her husband, their daughter, and their dog.
Although she enjoyed writing stories from a young age, Natalie had her heart set on becoming a watercolour artist until around age 9, when she decided writing stories was easier and less messy. Natalie first began writing poetry at around age 13, when she used words to cope with the trials and tribulations of becoming a teenager. She left home at age 16 and spent the next few years traveling around England and Wales looking for inspiration for her poems and stories.
In 2004, at age 18, Natalie’s poem Go To Sleep, was selected for print for The National Poetry Anthology’s annual poetry competition, and was published in the West Midland’s edition of that year’s anthology, The Heart’s Content. She fell in love with her husband later that year, and together they traveled around the country. Shortly after their marriage in 2007, Natalie left her day job and took up writing full time.
Since then, Natalie has written fourteen novels and released a compilation of her poetry, titled Walking Through Darkness. She is currently busy working on her next novel, amongst other projects. When she’s not writing you can find her making gifts and greeting cards, painting, taking long photography walks with the dog, and creatively cooking up yummy food!
