Alan McCluskey lives amid the vineyards in a small Swiss village between three lakes and a range of mountains. Nearby, several thousands of years earlier, lakeside villages housed a thriving Celtic community. The ever-present heart-beat of that world continues to fuel his long-standing fascination for magic and fantasy.
Alan McCluskey's work, whether as a teacher or a video artist or a company director or a scientist, was always marked by a need to challenge the self-evident. He has brought that questioning perspective to novel writing alongside a passion for the way gifted young people grow and develop as they are confronted by seemingly insurmountable obstacles.
Alan McCluskey has published two YA novels in The Storyteller's Quest series: The Reaches and The Keeper's Daughter. A third book, The Starless Square, is awaiting publication. He has also published Boy & Girl and its sequel In Search of Lost Girls.
