Alix Burrell was born in Scotland but moved to Asia with her family as a child. Her career in finance brought her to Singapore. She has published five books under her pen name Wicked Gilly and has given all the proceeds to charity.
Children love reading about all things icky and Alix writes about everything from pants and poo to sneezing elephants in order to cater to that streak of humor in kids. She had a regular column of wicked verse for the Banter magazine over the course of a year in 2005.
