Zoe Alley

Biographical Information for ZOË B. ALLEY
Having grown-up in a family of "literary grammarians", I have always been interested in words, recited and written. From an early age in Natick, Massachusetts, I participated in both theatre and music-related events, finishing up a whirlwind career in my early teens as a perpetual chorus member! I have, however, learned to deal with this fateful blow. I rallied, and am at long last thrilled to call myself an "Author" and see my words in print with the publication of "There's a Wolf at the Door"! I enjoy writing for being, among other things, a career that allows me to sit on the couch--my office!--in my pajamas and play with a pen and paper!

As the very proud wife of illustrator R. W. Alley, and the mother of two wonderful children--Cassandra and Max--I remain thrilled! School-wise, I received my B.A. from the University of New Hampshire, and my Ed.M. from Boston University. We live in Barrington, Rhode Island, and have a pretty fish named Yoshi, who likes to watch tv!
