About Alan MacKenzie

Hi, my name is Alan MacKenzie – but you already knew that. I was born in London, England, too late for the Rock-n-Roll fifties and too early for the Swinging Sixties. This is probably why I studied Process Plant Engineering and became an Oil & Gas Control Systems Engineer and not the next great pop star. However, engineering has given me the opportunity to work not only in the UK, but Europe, the Middle East, Russia and North Africa. (Adrenalin junkies should try flying Aeroflot – it puts bungee jumping into perspective). I’ve had a rich and enjoyable life, even more so now that I have settled in Southern England with my beautiful and very supportive wife.

My other passion has always been writing. Until now my professional writing career consisted of uninspiring technical documents, but my private writing career is far more exciting. I love the action thriller and horror genres. Oh to have the power to place characters in perilous, unpredictable situations and journey with them to their conclusion!

I would like to share these journeys with you so my debut novel ‘Time’s up’ is now available. If you have purchased, or are thinking of purchasing it, I wish you as much enjoyment reading it as I had writing it (and if you do please leave a positive review).

This is an exciting and fast paced thriller set in a not too distant and worryingly believable future. There is a terrific air of dark menace about the story and the plot keeps you guessing until the end. Highly recommended, more please!

Time's up was my first purchase on Smash words and I couldn't have been more pleased with my choice. This is an absolutely captivating thriller full of intrigue, packed with action, and brisling with drama. The plot is truly original and keeps you guessing from one page to the next. A fantastic read, I cannot recommend this book highly enough, a must read.

I was looking for a compelling read and discovered this wonderful debut novel from Alan Mackenzie. If you're looking for an adventure with a great plot and believable characters then I heartily recommend Time's up. I has touching moments between the main character Sam and her partner, and thrilling scenes that will have you on the edge of your seat until the last page. I can't wait for more.
