About the Author
Writing steampunk was a natural development from her obsession with tea. How could she not write in a genre where the characters shared her belief that 90% of the world's wrongs can be solved with a nice cup of tea? It also gave her a great excuse to spend her time looking at Victorian fashions and call it research. Her second novel, 'The Dirigible King's Daughter' was published in August 2016.
Alys is doing a MA in Creative Writing at York St John University and also teaches creative writing for Converge, an arts project for people with mental health issues.
When she's not reading or writing, Alys spends her time listening to folk music, baking and eating cake and crocheting. She occasionally blogs at alyswest.com, intermittently tweets at @alyswestyork and spends rather too much time on Facebook where you can find her at @AlysWestWriter. She's very happy to hear from readers and if you've got any comments or thoughts on her books then please do get in touch.
