Before graduating in English Literature at the University of Edinburgh in 1995, I worked as a master joiner/carpenter. Following graduation from university, I studied for a post-graduate diploma in Community Education and worked as a literacy tutor in Community Learning and Development. I have gained education awards and published an academic paper on the use of Scots language in family literacy work. I have produced teachers' notes for the Scottish Book Trust.
My first work of fiction, Justified Sinner, was completed in 2016. Since then I have published three more novels in the JP Associate series.

Thank you Mairi, I’ve got to say I am enjoying it. It was my Uncle Bert Mackie who directed me towards writing when I was 15 years old. He was a journalist and wrote over 9000 poems on a daily basis in the Evening News under the pen name MacNib. My rendition is a wee memorial to him.
If you could get any friends, family etc to “follow” my website alanaddison.com they would get an email to let them know the blog was live.
