Orna Ross is founder and director of the Alliance of Independent Authors. In 2011, Orna took her rights back from Penguin to republish her books herself, with the titles and treatment she’d originally envisaged. She launched ALLi at The London Book Fair 2012. As well as her work for ALLi, which has seen her named one of The Bookseller’s “Top 100 people in publishing”, Orna writes fiction and poetry, runs a Patreon page for poets and poetry lovers and an active author website. She is on a mission to help eradicate creative poverty, through digital micro-business and enterprise. You’ll find her, most days, on Twitter: @ornaross.
