"A young man tries to find peace while navigating the troubled waters of trauma and self-discovery in

The Pebble Champion by A.D. Pritchard. Laced with vivid snatches of flashback and memory, this emotionally charged novel is raw and vulnerable, but also told with the confidence of a skilled storyteller. From self-healing and grieving to sexual awakening and emotional growth, this novel fearlessly tackles delicate subjects with tenderness and valuable insight."

POET

"​I have to admit that Window Spit is my sort of poetry; direct, unflinching, in your face, but most of all, honest. The language is down-to-earth and Alan David Pritchard has avoided abstract imagery and oblique metaphors, presenting us with an accessible, thought-provoking, hard-hitting collection of which he can be justifiably proud. I encourage you to read Window Spit - there are some sparkling gems in there and you will not be disappointed."

PLAYWRIGHT

One-act plays for schools and festivals

"A fast-paced, boiling pot of a one-act play. Red-Handed is clearly well-realized by Pritchard, who vividly stages the play with inventive demonstrations of flashbacks and a minimal use of props. Short yet tense, Red-Handed is a rare play that performs itself well through the act of reading, a testament to Pritchard’s authorial and directorial vision."

POET

Alan David Pritchard Advancing Backwards Poetry

Advancing Backwards' ​is my first poetry collection published by Demented Poet Press in 2011.

 Most of the poems in this collection were featured in magazines, anthologies and websites around the world. ​

In 2005, I was made Poet of the Month by the then London Poet's Letter Society, and

I was invited to read at the Poets' Cafe in Covent Garden.

​ 'Like So' Video Poem = an official selection at the 2013 Visible Verse Festival in Vancouver, Canada.

One of my poems, 'Consequence',  was selected as the soundtrack for a student choreography assignment at Western Kentucky University.
