Alexander Turnbull


Alexander Turnbull started writing at the age of 36 after finally figuring out he wasn’t an accountant.

His writing career started when he constructed a James Bond novel, ‘The Ghost of a Chance’, which got good reviews on the website ‘FanFiction’ but a threat of legal action from the Bond publishers.

A series of Stephen King inspired tales of the supernatural followed beginning with ‘The Journal’ and continuing with ‘Scraps’ and ‘The Laughing Man’. Thirteen of the best were collected together in the anthology ‘It’s Later Than You Think’.

His first original novel ‘Better Out Than In’ has just been published and features a partly autobiographical character that can’t get ideas out of his head fast enough. His next novel, ‘The Horologist will be published next year.

Alexander Turnbull lives in Northumberland with his family.

Sometimes you’re closer to the edge of normal than you may imagine. ‘It’s Later Than You Think’ contains thirteen original tales which navigate the labyrinth of what may roughly be termed ‘the odd’. Killers in unlikely guises, fairy-tale monsters alive and well (and eating noisily) and at least one killer pile of scrap metal. All inspired by the question ‘what if?’
