Hi, welcome to my site. My name is Alan Blunden. I was born in North London and educated at Stationers Company's Grammar School.
I am now retired and living in Bishops Stortford.
I have a number of interests; writing comic poetry and studying the works of William Shakespeare, are the two to which I devote most time.
I am a member of the Harlow Writers: a group of people who gather each Thursday at Moot House in Harlow, Essex. It's a friendly group, which gives helpful advice to both new and old members.
I recently published a book, containing a rhyming synopsis for each of the Bard's thirty-seven plays, details of which can be found on the 'Shop' page.
A large portion (approximately 70%) of the money raised will be donated to the charity Grove Cottage (Mencap).
I am also inviting visitors to my site to take part in the 'authorship debate.'
I have firm views about this, maybe you have too.
I would also be interested to know what you love or hate, about the works of the Bard.
You can contact me by leaving a message on my Facebook page or by email at email@example.com, using either prose or verse. No more than ten lines, please. (Rhyming couplets would be good!)
