alan gregor (aka Charles Alexander)
Born in 1945 in Dundee, Scotland, on the fourth of July. Married for the last thirty two years to Sylvia, we have a twenty-nine year old son named John. A book of Dylan Thomas's prose, in 1965/6 , Prospect of the Sea, would have been the catalyst, that got me going, Portrait of an Artist as a Young Dog; Quite Early One Morning - dog-eared, they became. Now I am hawking my wares around the mags and competitions and trying to learn what I can from where I can. The pen-name 'alan gregor' started as a pig-headed wind-up on a magazine I worked on in the late seventies entitled "amf." Long story. And it stuck.
