Alison Morgan is a member of the Crime Writers Association. She only took up writing crime novels 5 years ago when a heart condition ended her beloved nursing career prematurely. Writing, she says, saved her sanity. Having spent thirty years in the National Health Service in the UK, gathering qualifications along the way, she specialised in psychiatry. As a registered Mental Health Nurse working in the community and specifically in First Episode Psychosis, she eventually became Clinical Nurse Manager for an innovative countywide service. Retired from nursing, now she educates others about mental health issues through entertaining stories, public speaking and audio narration. Writing under the name A B Morgan, the first two books in the Quirk Files series have been published by Hobeck Books this year, making a total of eight British crime mysteries and suspense novels to her name.
