So many dream dreams,

so few have the courage

to make them come true.

(Alison 2014)

Voice of the Soul

"Voice of the Soul" is an evocative collection of prose poetry inspired by the romance of wild, windswept places and very special moments. It is illuminated by specially selected fine art images and offers a truly unusual opportunity to experience the wisdom of silence that whispers when we are away from the chaos of the modern world. 


This treasury offers opportunities for inspiration, reflection and meditative mindfulness or just a chance to enjoy life from a more magical perspective.  

Ancient Earth

"Ancient Earth" provides a wonderfully unique combination of original work from two very special artists.

Colin Ross' powerful animal portraits are used to illuminate Ali Ross' evocative prose poetry and, together, capture the magic and mystery of Africa.

This beautiful book invites the reader to dream a journey to one of the worlds last wild places or to reflect on one you may have made yourself

Alison's work "Spring" and "Leaving" are published in Issue 39 of the Blue Nib Literary Journal

Alison's work is published in Issue 8 (Awakening) and Issue 9 (Inspiration) of Poetry NI's Panning for Poems

Daydreamer Journal


Keeping a journal is one of my daily routines, giving me space and time to capture thoughts, inspiration and creative ideas. The simple act of writing -  rather than typing - gives an energy to the words and stills the mind so the quiet voice inside can be heard as it informs and inspires.

This lovingly created journal offers personal inspirations on each spread as well as beautiful full plate images interspersed to delight - give it a try and dare to dream...


Alison's work "Ancient Gardener" is published in the Poetry in Motion Anthology 2018 -19

The 2016 Collection

2016 was a year full of wonderful new experiences, changes and growth. What better way to remember these moments than to capture all the images and poetry in one place as a touchstone for the year.


That is just what this publication is... a touchstone for 2016 at Nomads and Driftwood. It includes the entire "Reflections" collection as well as previously unseen poetry. I hope you will share it with us and enjoy...
