Alisa Bryce is a writer and soil scientist. She was born and raised in Sydney with her two brothers and one slightly mad border collie. She graduated from the University of Sydney with a bachelor of science in agriculture, majoring in soil science. After four years of pretending to be a serious professional consultant, Alisa studied at Cambridge University, completing a triple Master of geography, cycling on cobblestones, and looking like an extra from a Harry Potter movie.
Since then Alisa has dug holes, stood in holes, looked at soil, admired soil, tested soil, played with soil, and written about soil. In 2016 Alisa hung up her trowel (for the time being). She is now a freelance writer.
