A.C Sawyer

Alan Sawyer was born in the East of England and has been writing since a young age; often poetry and short stories. Although he had many ideas and part novels completed, he never published his first complete novel until his forties. Now he is working on his third. Writing comes very naturally to him and he likes to write in different ways in various genres, however thrillers and stories that are true to life are at the heart of his writing. He likes to pen from his own experiences and include snippets from the surroundings of where he lives. Often he writes a chapter in his head whilst on long walks around the water meadows by his local town.

His first novel ‘Cloudburst’ began as a song title, advanced into music and later progressed to a whole idea as a novel, but the end product was nothing like the original intention. His second novel ‘Goodbye Sunset’ is a sequel and completes the pairing; both are available on kindle and in paperback. They are thrillers based around relationship entanglements, which keep the reader guessing till the very end. His work in progress is a part historical novel and something not attempted before, he hopes this will be completed in 2018.

He continues to write music and poetry, which is something that came before the story telling, and he hopes a poetry anthology will come together in the near future.
