About Alan Annand

ALAN ANNAND is a writer of crime fiction, offering an intriguing blend of mystery, suspense, thriller and occult genres. When he’s not dreaming up ingenious ways to kill people and thrill readers, he occasionally finds therapy in writing humor, short stories and faux book reviews.

Before becoming a full-time novelist and scriptwriter, he worked as a technical writer for the railway industry, a corporate writer for private and public sectors, a human resources manager and an underground surveyor.

Currently, he divides his time between writing in the AM, astrology in the PM, and meditation on the OM. For those who care, he’s an Aries with a dash of Scorpio.

Review by: Alison Price on March 21, 2012 :
Scorpio Rising is a murder mystery with the twist being the hero who solves the crime is, amongst other things, a professional astrologer. Set in Canada and the USA this story is modern, tense and well written. The new age references are intricately woven into the drama. Annand builds believable characters and the scene backgrounds are rich in detail. There is everything you want in a thriller, homicide, sex and excitement. One can almost feel the heat.

The author is optimally positioned to pen this book as his vast spiritual knowledge permeates the writing. This work has wonderful references for astrologer and general read alike. New Age Noir was a new genre on me but I will be on the lookout for more titles from Annand. I bought my copy directly from Smashwords as an ebook download.
