Because words matter

Ali Lowe

Ali Lowe's writing is often labelled ‘suburban noir’, a cross between Big Little Lies and Desperate Housewives. Ali is a former journalist and the author of three books: The Trivia Night, The Running Club and her latest, The School Run

Her first, The Trivia Night, about a group of partner-swapping primary school parents in a wealthy Australian beachside suburb, became a global bestseller and was optioned by Paramount TV. 

Ali’s books are published in the UK, Australia and NZ, and she was recently signed by Crooked Lane Books to publish The School Run, a story about parents competing to the death to secure high school places for their sons, in America. 

Ali lives on Sydney’s Northern Beaches with her husband and three young children.
