Let's talk weather, writing, educational topics, humourous stories. Maybe some weird stuff...and photos of me in a fez.
Follow the #fridayflash hashtag in the right hand margin (under the Labels heading) for a sampling of my flash fiction.

I just thought that I'd send out a quick Valentines greeting to my girl-fans. If you are a guy-fan, pretend the creatures are a more manly rodent...perhaps rats or weasels. And that the one beastie is handing the other a 6-pack of Molsons Canadian. I'd like to assure you that no animals were harmed during this photo session, but I can't be sure that they haven't been handled recently by a taxidermist.
Alan was born in Greenock, Scotland and came to Canada with his parents in '65. He grew up in Victoria, B.C. but spent most of his adult years in London, Ontario.
Alan studied sciences at the University of Victoria (Geology) but eventually came to the conclusion that there was far too much science involved. He finished up with a civil engineering technician diploma (a fancy term for draftsman) from Fanshawe College in London.
Alan moved with his wife and son to St. John's, Newfoundland & Labrador in 2006 for a change of scenery.
He has taken a number of creative writing classes over the years and returned to writing in 2007. He is a member of the Writer's Alliance of Newfoundland & Labrador and his online fiction has appeared in MicroHorror, Static Movement, FlashShot and 52 Stitches.
