Alan Reynolds

Based in Yorkshire, Alan Reynolds’ interest in writing came later in life following a successful career in Banking.

Setting up his own management consultancy business in 2002, he has successfully delivered HR and Training projects across a wide range of businesses and organisations both in the UK and internationally. This experience has led to an interest in psychology and human behaviour through watching interactions and studying responses. Leadership has also featured strongly in his training portfolios and the knowledge gained has helped build the strong characters in all his books.

He took up writing as a hobby and completed his first novel, ‘Flying with Kites’, a harrowing and moving story based around the war in Kosovo, in just three weeks, in early 2010. It immediately attracted a cult following on the ‘Authonomy’ website with  one reviewer calling it ‘an important story that needs telling’.

His work subsequently attracted the interest of Fisher King Publishers who launched ‘Flying with Kites’ in September 2011, initially as an e-book but following initial demand in paperback. He has now completed seven novels which are detailed further on this site.

His second novel Taskers End was published in Dec 2012, his third, Breaking the Bank, April 2013, The Sixth Pillar in October 2013 and The Tinker in November 2014.. All have received acclaim from readers.

Flying with Kites was awarded a bronze award in the Wishing Shelf 2013 awards and The Sixth Pillar was #1 in the Military Download section on Amazon UK and was shortlisted for the 2015 Wishing Shelf Award.

 

Alan Reynolds has a growing following and is a regular at book clubs throughout Yorkshire and the north. He is available for book signings and talks about his work and writing in general.

BOOK DESCRIPTION

Author Book

Who is the mysterious visitor who turns up every year in the picturesque Cotswold village of Drayburn? What dark secret is he keeping? In another gripping thriller, award-winning writer, Alan Reynolds creates intrigue and finger-nail biting tension as we follow an itinerant worker who has returned to the English countryside for the past six summers applying his skills for the benefit of local people. In return for doing odd jobs and maintenance in the medieval church of St James he is given board and lodgings by the vicar and his wife. The villagers are only too keen to make the most of his many talents and treat him as one of their own but there are those from his past that would do him great harm. His very survival depends on him keeping his previous life from being discovered. This year it will be different. Maybe, just maybe it's time to stop running.
