Alan Parks was born in Eastbourne, East Sussex in 1978. In 2004 Alan's Dad died of cancer after he also went through a long term illness and two liver transplants. One of his mottos was always 'live life for today, life is too short'. That philosophy has encouraged Alan to get out there and pursue his dreams.
Alan's life changed for the better (he is constantly reminded) when he met Lorna in 2003. Work consisted of fairly mundane, mainly managerial posts. In 2008, Alan and Lorna moved to rural Andalucía, Spain, and now live in an old Olive Mill, off-grid, with a menagerie of animals. [from Amazon.com Author Page, retrieved 8/1/2015]
