Hi and thanks for visiting my Amazon author page! I’m a New Yorker, but I've lived in London my British husband and our two sons for almost fourteen years. I’m a dual qualified US lawyer and UK solicitor and I practiced immigration law in the UK before I started writing fiction. My parents and grandparents were Ukrainian immigrants to the US and their history and struggles had a great impact on my life, so I’m always interested in stories about migration, otherness, and what it means to be on the outside of a place looking in. I’ve felt that a lot of times in my life and it’s a human experience I like to explore through writing. In both Little Prisons and When I Ran Away I write about motherhood, migration, loneliness, and the strength of female friendships. I also explore mental health through my characters. I hope you enjoy reading my books or listening to them on Audible. You can find me on Instagram @ilona.bannister and on Twitter @ilonabannister.
