Alison MacLeod was born in Montreal, Canada. In her early years the family moved from Quebec to Michigan and finally back to Nova Scotia, the home province of both her parents, and the place where both sides of the family had lived for generations.

Her first real understanding of literature’s beautiful grip came at the age of 14 when she was given a battered copy of Jane Eyre.It was the first experience she had of the visceral pleasure of reading; where she felt she had been physically plunged into someone else’s world.

At university, MacLeod studied English and French literature.But it was after graduating, while working nights as an usher at a theatre in Halifax, and mingling with young set designers, actors and stage managers, that she realised it was possible to become someone who made things; someone who trusted her imagination enough to see where it would take her.

In 1987, it took her to England to take up a place on the University of Lancaster’s MA in Creative Writing.In that year, her first short story was published, and she continued to write and publish short fiction.In 1990, she started teaching literature and creative writing at the University of Chichester, where she lectures today.In 1996, her first novel, The Changeling, was published in the U.K. and U.S.In 2005, The Wave Theory of Angels was published by Hamish Hamilton and Penguin Books in Canada.Her short story collection, Fifteen Modern Tales of Attraction ( Hamish Hamilton) followed in 2007.She is currently working on her next novel, which is set in Brighton.

In her work, MacLeod is interested, perhaps above all, in the transformative force of the imagination in our lives.She is also drawn to images and principles of high-energy; to stories of the unpredictable forces of love, sex, birth and death.

She lives in Brighton and returns often to Canada to see family.
