Born and raised in the United States, Alice Hayley Walsh has worked as a freelance writer and journalist for a number of local and national media outlets in her early twenties. She moved to Edinburgh in the fall of 2013, where she began work on her debut novel A Poker Game of Love while pursuing a degree in Journalism at the Edinburgh University. In her spare time she continued writing features for online publications.

Her debut novel A Poke Game of Love, which came out in March, 2014, has been described as a 'witty, darker amalgam of The Devil Wears Prada and Sex and the City', Walsh herself doesn't hide the works of critically-acclaimed Lauren Weisberger and Candace Bushnell were a source of inspiration for her first book. 'I've always identified with their signature sharp style of expression.' the author admits.

Currently dividing her time between writing and social networking, Alice can be often spotted out and about Edinburgh, trying to keep up with the city's vibrant pace.
