Allison Vale (Author) Allison Vale has written more than a dozen books, many of which betray an unhealthy curiosity with obscure and unsettling aspects of the lives of women in history, such as, The Lost Art of Being a Lady; How to Push a Perambulator, and Amelia Dyer: Angel Maker, a biography of the murderous, 30-year career of Britain's most prolific baby farmer. She lives near Bristol with her husband and their two children, and though she has not yet read anywhere near enough of Virago's backlist, she's desperately hoping her Caitlin Moran obsession more than compensates.Victoria Ralfs (Author) Victoria Ralfs discovered a borderline inappropriate ease in discussing life, love and relationships with her secondary school students early on in her career. This gained momentum in the field of learning disability where she wrote, spoke and trained nationally and (occasionally) internationally on Sexuality & Relationships Education. Her husband and two, now adult, children have happily and healthily survived the Velcro penises in their study in Bristol. Victoria's wider family would probably describe her as an 'annoying, gobby do-gooder type', hence her desire to include them unflatteringly in this, her first book.
