Alexander Hawksville

Publisher info

I live in Scotland where I appreciate the beauty of my rural surroundings. Landscape and how it influences people is a large part of my work. I have been involved in many different areas of the performing arts. On a regular basis I travel to 'the big city' and perform in Poems and Pints nights. I write and self-publish poetry. I also do this for other writers.

In the past I was with Borderline Theatre where I took part in, and wrote plays for their Community Outreach project.

Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror are my favourite genres, and my books on these subjects feature on Smashwords

Writing is a hobby and a passion and has allowed me to meet and perform alongside a lot of people I would never have encountered otherwise. I am part of a community and that has been the most valuable part of the writing experience for me.
