I write creative fiction and poetry. Every weekend I post a new original piece - my Patrons are the first to ever get to read it. People say nice things about my work:

  • 'Al has great virtuosity - every weekend it's different and you're never quite sure what you'll be getting next.' MW, Sussex
  • 'Forget the Costa Book Prize, you get four pieces of clever original writing a month for less than the price of a Costa Coffee - what's not to like?' HJ, Loughton, Essex
  • 'Al's writing is both clever and charming in equal measures - it makes me smile.' GK, Godalming
  • 'Al has a wry left field point of view that makes you see life in a different way.' JM, London
  • 'Subscribing to Al's combination of weekly musings, sharp observation, interesting characters and lyrical insights is a weekly pleasure.' FC, Horsham
  • 'I particularly like the ones that have me in them.' Coco, Al's cocker spaniel.

About Mostly Unpublished

Ask yourself this? Would you rather spend £12 per month on The Sunday TImes and get yesterday's news, or spend £1.98 a month and get a piece of unseen original fiction? Let's be honest if you can afford 12 quid a month for the ST it's not too far a financial stretch to subscribe to this page as well - and given what the news has been for the past 12 months you could probably do with the break.

I'm a story-teller - I write a new short story or piece of flash fiction every week, so you get a new story emailed to you every weekend. They're quite easy reads. Most pieces are between 500 and 2,000 words and they give you something to smile about or something to think about - just the thing to give you a feelgood factor after a long week.

I also write longer pieces - you can find them, stories previously posted here and the first 2,000 words of my debut novel, on my website at As a patron, you will be the first to hear about them. You'll also have access to my regularly updated blog about writing and the creative process. I would appreciate your support and thank those who have supported me so far. I'm hoping to raise enough money to go back and finish my MA in Creative Writing this autumn.
