Alan Tootill is the author of the Martin Cole Novels, centred on the fictional Devon town of Roselake. The books blend humour and crime mystery.
Alan is also the author of Fracking The UK and the upcoming, Fracking The UK 2.
Alan spends his year partly in East Devon and partly in Puglia, Italy. Not to mention regular trips to India, where he has travelled extensively over the last twenty years and now regularly attends classical music festivals. He has two grown-up children, and his wife Christine is a writer of mathematics courses and textbooks.
Alan's background includes technical writing, writing for magazines and press agent work, but it was with the Martin Cole series that he turned to fiction writing. Currently there are five books in the series.
