About Alan Nayes

I live in Southern California but still consider myself part Texan by birthright. I was born in Houston and grew up in Dallas. I’ve resided in California since the mid 1980’s but get back to Texas as much as possible. My first two published novels—GARGOYLES and THE UNNATURAL are biomedical thrillers. Actually THE UNNATURAL could also fall into the horror genre as it is a pretty bizarre tale. BARBARY POINT is a love story about a successful young woman who falls in love with a fishing guide. It was written on a suggestion from a former agent.

I have several other projects in the works. HEMLOCK POND is a horror story about a young woman and her son who move into a farmhouse with a haunted pond.

GIRL BLUE, another pretty bizarre story, is about a world renowned sculptor who becomes haunted by his last work. Oh did I mention the sculptor is terminally ill?

SMILODON is the story of a huge cat that terrorizes a small town in the majestic Pacific Northwest. This one will grab you and not let go—yeah, that sounds like a cat.

PLAGUE is the riveting sequel to GARGOYLES. Fasten your seat belts, close your eyes and pray like hell because the world as we know it is coming to an end.

My favorite football team is the Superbowl champs GREEN BAY PACKERS. Sorry Cowboys. But when GB is not on the gridiron—Go Dallas! Great Cheerleaders, too!

I enjoy the outdoors and as a side note I’m one of only a few individuals to ever swim across Wisconsin’s chilly Lake Winnebago. Does this make me a better writer—probably not.

When I’m not working on my next project, I enjoy relaxing and fishing at our family vacation home in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

If you are a fan of Michael Crichton style novels, then you will definitely want to read this sci-fi thriller, Smilodon. Alan Nayes manages to make the scenes so gripping, that the read went by very fast, despite the fact that this is a 300 page book. The writer weaves in touching backstory as Jason Bristol is still struggling with his son's mauling by a bear while he's also tracking a killer Saber Tooth Tiger. There's a large cast of characters, even a few villainous guys that I was really hoping would get eaten, but I won't say what happened to them. Read for yourself!
