About Alister

I am an award-winning feature writer of Drama and Sci-fi. I have qualified as a finalist in several reputable screenwriting competitions, with my screenplay Martyr's Ridge making Coverfly's The Red List Top 20 Sci-Fi Features of the Month.

Going through a near-death experience has motivated me to produce thought-provoking material that touches the soul and ignites inspiration to transform life's adversities.

I believe that our human experience is a gift. There is much to gain from our trying times, even more than our considered "high times." To my detriment, I love the struggle. Be it writing or everyday life. There is a beauty to it. That is what my work boils down to; finding that light in the darkness. Our creative energy derives from what we've experienced. It can be molded and transformed into something meaningful. Not only for ourselves but more importantly, for others.

Unique traits: Published Poet: My poetry has found publication in England, Japan, Canada, and the United States. Poetry Chapbooks: Angels & Ghosts, Hiding From Autumn
