a l a n w r i t e s :
started writing after the Millennium but thought
about doing it the century before. When writing I look
for humour in dark places and humanity in unlikely guises
(some not human). Since having a baby daughter, I’ve also enjoyed collaborating with
the illustrator Jonny Voss, on a series of strange stories for
curious children and unusual adults.
I live in London but you might recognise Wicklow
Harbour in my picture: a place of coming and going; and somewhere I always return to."
