Alan Williams

Alan has worked in film and television most of his life, on sitcoms ranging from Absolutely Fabulous to Keeping Up Appearances and Reeves and Mortimer. For the last 20 years he has monitored every film and TV show made in the UK. His first novel, The Blackheath Seance Parlour, is a celebrated cult classic embracing Victorian London’s first ever psychics. It is currently optioned for a drama series by Vox and Cliff Edge Pictures.

Originally from South Wales, Alan lives in Blackheath, London, where he is trying to gain access to an underground cavern in which Victorian masked balls were held and, in between yo-yo dieting and drinking too much, he likes to travel to the world's weirdest places.

The 44 Islands of Wales is Alan’s eagerly anticipated third novel.
