About this author

ALAN ANNAND is a writer of crime fiction, offering an intriguing blend of mystery, suspense, thriller and occult genres. When he’s not dreaming up ingenious ways to kill people, he finds therapy in writing humor, short stories and book reviews.

Before becoming a full-time novelist, he worked as a technical writer for the railway industry, a human resources manager and an underground surveyor.

Currently, he divides his time between writing in the AM, astrology in the PM, and meditation on the OM. For those who care, he’s an Aries with a dash of Scorpio.

ALAN ANNAND:
- Writer of mystery suspense novels.
