Alison Beveridge cherishes her native North-East of England, her family, friends and football.
She earned a Master’s degree in acting from ALRA Drama School and returned to her homeland to open a children’s theatre school.
As a lover of lists, Alison was determined to enjoy her plans for the 30 Things to do Before I’m 30 list. Writing a book was the priority which became Me, Myself and Ed. This is her debut novel and is based on her battle with an eating disorder.
She hopes it will contribute to the narrative surrounding perfectionism and the pressures faced by many because of their weight. Most importantly, she wants to increase awareness, challenge preconceptions and provide a kindly insight into the condition that affects so many brave people.
If you’re dealing with similar challenges or are a health care professional, then this is the book for you.
Me, Myself and Ed – Synopsis
Scarlett is a vibrant and dedicated teacher. She’s also a daughter, a sister, a friend and a victim. As a keen observer of the world, she fails to observe the turmoil that is stirring within her. She faces a battle that she neither instigated nor anticipated whilst still running a very busy work and social life. When she is diagnosed with Anorexia Nervosa, Scarlett is forced to make the decision; will she feed ‘Ed’ or will she choose to battle the crippling whispers of severe illness?
Alison is available for speaking engagments.

“It was a delight to have Alison with us as a speaker at Bubbles in Bishop ladies’ networking group. Alison spoke so eloquently about the reality of living with an eating disorder. Reading from “Me, Myself and Ed”, she had everyone gripped and wanting more. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Alison as a speaker, and her book is also a real delight to read.”
