About me

Where to begin? I have always enjoyed writing, ever since I was a child and can’t remember a time where I haven’t wanted a book in my hand. I did a degree in English and Drama at Roehampton University and ended up doing a PGCE at the Cambridge University, Homerton College after which I embarked on a career in teaching. I’ve been doing this ever since. I read excessively, all sorts of novels by different authors; my favorites are Ian Rankin, Ruth Rendell and Daphne du Maurier but I’m always finding others. That said, writing is a passion for me and I really enjoy the creative release it can give. “Mystery, Deceit and a School Inspector” was published in 2006 with UK Independent publisher Pneuma Springs (you can read the first few chapters for nothing here on CN). I now also write to appeal to the darker side of the teenage/young adult mind. My second work titled OTOLI for Young Adult readers went through redraft here on CN with the help of readers feedback. This book was published by Pneuma Springs on 28th April 2011. I’m now researching and writing for other projects for both Adult and Young Adult readerships. I look forward to touching base with you all.

I know, from what I have been told, that there are some spelling and grammer errors. I want to know what I need to fix, what you loved, what you hated? Thank you, Shea Lovekin (more) and earned+3

I'm really keen to publish novels, but it's really tough out there, even with an excellent agent (which I'm very lucky to have). Actually, I'm on CompletelyNovel for the feedback I can get for my fiction (as well as interacting with some very smart, lovely people). My experiences with publishers have been pretty positive, overall; the toughest thing about being a professional writer (which I have been in the past) is that it's such a precarious way to make a living - and I'm still trying to do that on a permanent basis! All the best, Alan (more) and bagged+3

Are you going it alone because of experiences of publishing with a mainstream publisher or are you looking to get in with someone else now. It would be interesting to know of your experiences and reasons for choosing Completely Novel. (more) and received+3
