Alans bio


I worked as a carpenter/joiner before studying English Literature at the University of Edinburgh. Later, I received a post-graduate Diploma in Community Education from the same university. After that, I worked as a family literacy tutor and Community Development Worker in Edinburgh Scotland. I have written academic material on family literacy and teachers notes for the Scottish Book Trust. Justified Sinner is my first novel and is planned as the first in a series of six, based around the goings-on of JP Associates, a private investigation agency in Leith, Edinburgh. Although appearing to be focused on crime and detection, the series takes the reader on a journey through an existence that poses a great many questions about life, the dilemmas we face and decisions we are forced to make, on an almost daily basis.
