I am John A.D Hickling (Alan Derek). I am a author of fiction and non-fiction books.
I have alway’s loved writing and creating for as long as I remember. Especially with my imagination, it was a dream to release my own book . I attended college, completing creative writing courses. So it has been a roller coaster of a journey, with the best part, releasing my first book. Champagne & Lemonade in 2016.
I love to spend time with my family. I like to travel, with New york, San Francisco, Puerto Rico Gran Canaria being fond destinations. I love to go to the theatre, Billy Elliott, Wicked and A Gentleman’s Guide To Love and Murder being some of the shows at the top of my list. I enjoy keeping fit and do workouts, runs, and enter tough events with the pinnacle so far being completing the London Marathon 2016. I enjoy to go out for meals with my Wife and like to try different foods, seafood and chicken being some of my favourites. I am very open-minded and like to try new things and judge for myself. I love cities with London being a big favourite. I am married and live in Nottingham, England
A Proud father and grandfather. I am a lover of music, especially 60’s rock and I have recorded two independent albums, and appeared in comedy band Space Cadets on Britains got talent.
