Alan is based in Melbourne, Australia, and writes Science Fiction, Contemporary Fiction and the occasional Technical Article. Below are links to the fiction he plans to publish via SmashWords and their associated distributors. He has 3 books in the Anita Histories which form a completed story line. There are another 2 following which are closely linked to Anita. Sarah has a companion novel and he has finished a third contemporary fiction novel in between them too. Science Fiction and Contemporary are coming together in a novel he is working on which is SF set in the present time.
Alan started writing during his undergraduate years followed by a long hiatus as he obtained a PhD (physics) and a paying job as a research scientist.
He found full-time employment and writing did not go together for him. Many years later he took early (early-ish) retirement to try his hand again. It worked! Well, he thought it did, you the potential reader may or may not agree. Anyway, Alan has been heard to say, “Writing is more fun than reading,” because often while he has an overall idea he is not (consciously) aware of exactly where the story is heading: the twists, turns, and new characters delight him too. He says he subscribes to the Ray Bradbury style of writing: “The only good writing is intuitive writing. It would be a big bore if you knew where it was going”. Of course, there is then the hard graft trying to tighten things up and eliminate the typos and some of the stupid little words which keep trying to insinuate themselves where they are not wanted. It is a war of attrition and he believes he has mostly won it. Any delays in publication are generally due to his attempts to provide the best reader experience.
