Alain’s Snakes Inside My Mind poem is truly stand-out. He has a metaphorical brilliance that colours his poetry and speaks of things that could not otherwise be adequately expressed. Lose yourself in this collection.  - Ant Smith 5*****

Alain is intense; a superb poet & performer:
His poetry takes you through inner & outer journeys that are always powerful; insightful; deep; and personal: His book is energetic & sincere; as is He: Highly Recommended! Tara Fleur 5*****

An Asperger Actor

An Asperger Actor was Alain’s first book, and became the subject of his Edinburgh Fringe show in 2013. You can read a very touching review of the show here, and you can buy a copy here.

“An Asperger Actor” is the story of a conflicted young man who grew up with the sense that he was a little bit ‘different’ to the other people around him. He had an excitable fantasy life that confused his perception of the world around him, leading to bullying and mental health problems dogging him at every turn. He finds his niche doing theatre, as pretending to be other people brings him out of himself. But this is only the beginning of a very long struggle that takes him from the silver streets of Aberdeen to the bright lights of London. This is the tale of a young man coming to terms with who is, and learning sometimes playing yourself is the hardest role of all.
