Hi! Welcome to my website!
My name's Alan Durant and, among other things, I write stories for children of all ages - from toddlers to teenagers. I also write poetry for children and adults.
Just click through the menu, and my world's your oyster!
Chelsea Young Writers Club is back for 6 - 11 year-olds (two groups) with me and Margaret Bateson-Hill. Come and have fun writing! Find out more at www.chelseayoungwriters.co.uk
The BAFTA award-winning episode of CITV's Bookaboo featuring Burger Boy was broadcast again on 6 June. Hurrah!
Look out for my latest titles The Rescue and The Red Light (Harper Collins Big Cats) and the reissue (with new cover) of my picture book Angus Rides The Goods Train.
