This week my guest is Alison Williams, author of the historical novel, The Black Hours

Alison Williams is an independent historical novelist, freelance writer and editor. She lives in Hampshire with her husband, two teenage children and a variety of pets. After having her children, Alison worked in education until deciding to bite the bullet and write full-time – it only took her until her forties! She now has several jobs within the field of writing. She works as a freelance writer with articles published on line and in magazines and also as an editor, working mainly with self-published authors. Alison’s novel writing focusses on the stories of ordinary people caught up in the real events of history and she is currently working on two ideas for her next novel - one involving the Gunpowder Plot and another based on a painting by Eugene Delacroix, as well as helping one of her oldest friends to edit and publish her great granddad’s WWI memoirs. When she has any time left at all, she enjoys blogging, reading, running (very slowly), listening to music (she has an obsession with Johnny Marr), and watching The Sopranos (again). From 2011-2012 she studied for a Masters in Creative Writing with the University of Glasgow. As part of her studies, Alison wrote her first novel ‘The Black Hours’ – available now from Amazon, Smashwords, Barnes and Noble, Sony and the Apple Store.
