I am Alan, a struggling author living in Devon. I am married to Ange and have a son, James.
I have always loved writing and mainly write fantasy and Sci-Fi. I have more ideas than i have time to write, and this causes me to start lots but often finish nothing. I am also a perfectionist, which means that everything must be absolutly perfect and so i will go over and over my writings changing it, slowing me even more.
My main faults are that i am scatty; I need to concentrate on one thing and complete it.

Fave Music: Metal and Rock. Mainly Queen, Black Sabbath, Meat Loaf, but also easy listening like Gene Pitney.
