Allan lives in Ontario, Canada but was born and grew up in Merseyside, England.He studied in North Wales (B.Sc.) and East Anglia (Ph.D.). By profession a chemist, he has worked for many years as a consultant on international chemical regulation and has traveled extensively.
He is currently writing a series of art-crime mystery novels featuring Catrin Sayer, a central character who is Welsh, an artist and a policewoman with the Metropolitan Police Service in London. The first novel, The Chinese Sailor, covers her transition from uniform work into the role of a detective with an art crime unit and is set largely in North Wales. The second novel, The Scottish Colourist, is partially set in Glasgow. Other novels in the same series, dealing with the development of the life, career and cases of Catrin Sayer will be set in other locations, many of which the author has lived in or visited over the years.
In a Moon’s Course, his first book, is on an entirely different topic; flight simulation and the subject of the Air Transport Auxiliary in England during World War II. It arose from his comparison of the sophistication of airline flying today with the ‘seat of the pants’ flight skills required by the men and women ferry pilots during World War II.
