About Alan Durant
I am the award-wining author of eighty books for children - from toddlers to teenagers, prose and poetry - on a wide range of themes and subjects from football to fairies. I frequently give readings/talks and run workshops in schools and libraries (all over the UK and abroad), as well as insets and writing workshops for adults. I've done a lot of work inspiring reluctant readers and writers (boys especially). I try to enthuse and inspire by showing children (and adults) how I write - using my own life, experiences and interests to spark my imagination.
