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.

Whether you want to find out about my books or my work in schools, or you're a Duran Duran fan who wandered in here by mistake, I hope you find something of interest.

Just click through the menu, and my world's your oyster!
