Alistair Potter


Alistair Potter lives and works in Portobello, which is by the seaside on the Firth of Forth just outside of Edinburgh, Scotland. Mostly hid days are spent writing Fantasy, Science Fiction, short stories and poetry, with the stop for a ukulele break.


Alistair has been writing since 1993 and placing short stories, cartoons and poetry in small publications. His work has been read on the BBC Radio4, Scottish Shorts series, and he is former recipient of a Scottish Arts Council New Writer's Bursary. "I hope readers find my books as enjoyable to read as it was for me to write them. When people ask what I do all day I can honestly say I'm probably on another planet, and meeting the most amazing characters while I visit!"
