L. Alison Heller grew up in Connecticut and attended Bates College in Maine. After graduation, she wandered dreamily around the eastern seaboard, temping and interning and shelving books, trying a little of this and a little of that, before landing in Chapel Hill, North Carolina. Having hit her limit for dreamy wandering, she enrolled at the University of North Carolina School of Law. In 2000, she graduated from UNC with honors and moved to New York City, where she toiled in several law firms, growing increasingly nostalgic for those days of dreamy wandering. Alison opened her own family law and mediation practice in 2006 to help couples divorce with their sanity intact.
Alison is the author of THE NEVER NEVER SISTERS and THE LOVE WARS (both from The Penguin Group).
Alison currently lives in Brooklyn with her family and is right now probably working on someones divorce or her next novel or riding on the New York City subway, dragging or being dragged by at least one child on a scooter. (Dont be fooled by Alisons modest blushthe subway dragging is every bit as glamorous as it sounds.)
