About

WELCOME TO UK YANKEE - WHERE ALL OUR STORIES START AND END WITH LOVE

Not the sappy Princess-Gets-Her-Man kind of love but the crazy, loud, in-your-face kind of love that is an integral part of all families. In our world, families are made up of a rag-tag bunch of people who somehow all came together in a tangled bond of love, laughter and crumbs. And all our products follow this theme.

Hi there! I’m Alisa, a born Midwesterner who had a culture-reassignment operation nearly 20 years ago and am now British (by residency). Though I do retain certain traits peculiar to the Midwesterner- like a love of sweet potatoes with marshmallows; rock-outs to John Mellencamp; and a retained ability to drive in snow.

But that’s all rounded out by my addiction to proper tea (I travel with my own tea-bags now); my strict belief in Delia Smith as the answer to all of life’s cooking questions; and my ability to use the weather as a conversational opener.

Having survived my own upbringing with a raucous and fun-loving family, I went on to become a genealogist on the other side of the Atlantic. So I could meet other people’s raucous and fun-loving families (even if some of them had been dead for a couple hundred years).

Family & Heritage are the cornerstone of who I am and all of UK Yankee's products are celebrations of these things.

Frequently asked questions
Is The Baby Files appropriate for a US Audience

The short answer is YES! As long as you don't mind British spellings and a few British idioms here and there (like holiday instead of vacation). The only other main difference is on the page called A Sign of the Times where there is space to write in the Prime Minister's name and a place to say what £1 would buy. But of course, you can feel free to modify this. Or maybe you'd like your child to know who the Prime Minister (of any country) was, in which case you may have a future history buff on your hands!

Is The Baby Files suitable for Gay Parents?

YES!! It is! I wrote this book especially for gay parents so please get your copy here and tell all your friends! xoxo
