Alexander Linton is a multidisciplinary writer of novels, comics, short stories and poetry, as well as an abstract artist. His work includes the genres of fantasy, science fiction, historical fiction, horror and psychological fiction. Alexander was born in South London, England. He attended a performing arts school, where he studied drama, media studies, art and English literature. His first job was as a store assistant in a video game store at the age of 18, which was also the age he began writing his first novel. Alexander found early creative inspiration in a combination of fictional literature and story driven video games, a combination which continues to inspire him to date. Alexander also began writing poetry in his late teens, starting with his first poem Sleepless Days, and took to abstract painting. He has since written blogs, newspaper articles and song lyrics. Alexander later studied and established a career in digital marketing, which included both technical consultancy and ad copy writing. He then used this experience to launch his career with his debut novel A Song For Nightfall.
