Brought up in rural Kent, Ali Seegar attended ballet school from the age of eleven. After obtaining her Equity card at nineteen, having danced for a year in Mexico, she went on to work professionally as a dancer and actress until a knee injury in her early twenties forced her to stop. Realising she had to pursue a new direction, a career in marketing started soon afterwards; where her particular strength in writing has, over the years, led her to specialise in communication for a diverse range of sectors.
In 2003, Ali first started to write a story about a boy whose life is turned upside down when his family move house, drawing on her own boarding school experiences. Although the draft manuscript was finished within a few months, it took Ali ten years to pluck up the courage to send the manuscript to an editor. After publishing her first book "Tommy Turner's Tremendous Travels" in 2016, Ali started to write her second book in the series, "Tommy Turner's Battle for Yorintown", which was published in 2019.
She has spent the last few years visiting various English-language schools in Luxembourg giving creative writing workshops to pupils.
