Alan Place


I am a Yorkshire-born writer of many genres. My most popular series (Forgestriker) has sold over 8000 e-books on Draft2Digital.
My latest book Aliyah - A Homecoming - is a change of direction for me as it is a mystery romance set in Israel among other countries.
As I have been writing for over a decade, I have earned several reps for my work, including one as an award-winning writer of speculative fiction.

There is a growing feeling that I should consider myself as a bestseller with over 800 e-books sold in four years - an opinion not shared by me.

If I have a bad trait it is that when I write a story, I think ahead for the next story in the series, but the series rarely happen.

Smashwords Interview

Do you remember the first story you ever read, and the impact it had on you?
Yes, it was the Silver Sword and the feeling of wandering through a war-ravaged city stayed with me for years.
How do you approach cover design?
Most of the time the covers come from pictures I have taken, and ones I can link to the story.
