Alan Davie - Intro and Bio

Alan Davie - An introduction

Author, playwright, actor and, perhaps most importantly, Letchworth Writers' treasurer. Alan wears many hats but, with a milestone birthday approaching, the time is right to focus un his writing skills.

As you'll see in the following pages Alan is a difficult writer to pigeonhole. Equally at home writing science fiction, humour or straight fiction, Alan has a unique voice within the group. His wry looks at life are a delight and even his science fiction sometimes has its tongue planted firmly in its cheek. I'll be adding more stories over the next few days. In the meantime just settle back and enjoy.



Alan Davie is a retired Civil Engineer who moved to Letchworth in 1988 from North London.. He was pretty useless writer at school and didn’t write anything until the mid 1970’s, when, as a member of an amateur dramatic group, he wrote a play (more a ballet with words) for his first wife, which won the cup for the ‘best innovative play’ in a District competition. After this success, he wrote only a little for his own amusement, until he joined the Letchworth Writers Group in 2017, where he has learned so much and has tried to contribute a piece of writing every month.
