About Me

Hi!  You’ve found Alex Breck.

It’s great to meet you, what’s the craic?

I now live quietly on the beautiful West Coast of Scotland. Amongst many endeavours which ‘seemed like a good idea at the time’ I have been an ice-cream van driver in Kansas, a banker in San Francisco, an oil accountant in London and an English teacher in Madrid.

I’m the author of the Ridge Walker series of international adventure thrillers and I’m currently in the final death throes of completing the fifth in the series, provisionally titled, NO PLACE TO HIDE,  after ‘The Loss Report’  ‘The Piper’s Promise’ ‘The Piper’s Lament’ and ‘He Who Pays The Piper.’

NO PLACE TO HIDE, due for Spring publication, is a topical thriller spanning the globe and it’s shaping up to be the toughest test yet, for Ridge and Orla.  You’re going to love it…!

As a creative writing and crime writing tutor at a local college on the mainland, I helped set up a writing group and we have published a couple of non-profit short story books over the last year or so. ‘Sea Passages’ is a short story collection on the theme of ferry journeys and our second anthology ‘Footfalls’ is exploring  the idea of pathways. Look out for a third anthology in 2023…!

I’ve also published a gritty stand-alone thriller called ‘The Devil You Know’ based in Scotland. Last year, 2021, saw the publication of the second instalment, called ‘The Devil Inside,’ possibly my most controversial book yet, and one of which I am very proud. 

Currently, like many of us, I am recovering from various plague-related annoyances, while pulling what’s left of my hair out at the financial and political shenanigans which continue to fester around the world. Rich pickings perhaps, for a contemporary thriller author, but sometimes I have to question my sanity as ‘Real Life Inc’ frequently trumps all but the most outlandish fictional plot lines.
