About Alix

Hello and thanks for visiting! I'm Alix Kelso, the author of the Fairhill novel series. I'm happiest with my nose in a book, and love being whisked off to lovely story worlds. Having previously worked as a shop assistant, waitress, hospital cleaner and dishwasher, I eventually became a university lecturer. Although I loved the academic world of teaching and researching and helping my students, I always enjoyed writing stories in my spare time and finally decided to pursue my dream of publishing a novel and becoming a full time writer.


I live in my home city of Glasgow with my husband and our rescue lurcher, Maggie. I enjoy pottering in the kitchen, walking in Glasgow’s many lovely parks, and I'm a firm believer in the therapeutic benefits of a long lunch with a big glass of wine.
