Alan Porter was born in Wales in 1967. After a successful career as a composer of theatre and commercial music in the 1990s he moved into publishing, initially as a music typesetter, then later as a book designer.
Alan began writing in 2003 and his first horror novel, Midwinter Lucie, was published in 2008. A second novel, again for young adults, appeared a year later. Alan's first adult novel, the start of a sci-fi/horror series under the title 'Firestorm' was published in November 2012.
He now writes dark thrillers dealing with subjects as diverse as mental illness (Run, 2013), Genetically Modified food (GM, 2014) and international terrorism (Sleeper Cell, 2015).
Alan lives in rural Worcestershire, England, with his wife and parrot.

Keep reading!
