Alex Durkin


I'm a construction surveyor with a degree in philosophy. I enjoy using fiction to explore philosophical and social issues while building exciting sequences in my writing.

I was born in Madison, Wisconsin in 1980 and currently live in Madison with my wife and two daughters.

My favorite authors include Franz Kafka, Mark Kurlansky, Friedrich Nietzsche, and Lee Child. Who doesn't love Jack Reacher novels?

I hope to create thoughtful and exciting stories that invite readers to adjust their expectations and suspend their disbelief. I hope to depart, along with the reader, from reality in order to look back upon reality and find deeper meaning. And I hope we have fun. Thanks for coming to my Author Page.
