Alan Devey

The son of a coal miner and a caterer, Alan Devey grew up working class in the divided England of the 1980s. He now writes fiction, scripts and non-fiction and has previously published numerous books including a novella about cryonics and being lost called 'You Don't Bury Survivors' and a collection of short stories: 'Outside The Comfort Zone - Tales From Austerity Britain'.

In 2015 Alan completed a Creative Writing MA at London's Metropolitan University. He now writes a regular blog on writing and other matters at his website alandevey.net and is a presenter for the Comes With MP3s music show on Radio Woking (cwmp3.com) as well as being a committee member of London Comedy Writers (londoncomedywriters.com).

'The Gestalt Switch' is his latest book, a speculative work, mainly set in 2023, that concerns delusion, identity, polarisation and the identities we cling to.

Alan lives in London with his family.
