More About the Author



I live in Southern California but still consider myself part Texan by birthright. I was born in Houston and grew up in Dallas. I've resided in California since the mid 1980's but get back to Texas as much as possible. My first two published novels--GARGOYLES and THE UNNATURAL are biomedical thrillers. Actually THE UNNATURAL could also fall into the horror genre as it is a pretty bizarre tale. BARBARY POINT is a love story about a successful young woman who falls in love with a fishing guide. It was written on a suggestion from a former agent.

I have several other projects in the works. HEMLOCK POND is a horror story about a young woman and her son who move into an old farmhouse with a haunted pond. Boo!

GIRL BLUE, another pretty bizarre story, is about a world renowned sculptor who becomes haunted by his last work. Oh did I mention the sculptor is terminally ill?

SMILODON is the story of a huge cat that terrorizes a small town in the majestic Pacific Northwest. This one will grab you and not let go--yeah, that sounds like a cat.

PLAGUE is the riveting sequel to GARGOYLES. Fasten your seat belts, close your eyes and pray like hell because the world as we know it is coming to an end.

RETURN TO UNDERLAND is a middle grade children's adventure story that includes dinosaurs and cavemen. Ooooh!

Very soon I'll be releasing my first paranormal romance. THE LEARNER will be the first book in the Learner Series. I'm excited about gettng this one out there. It should arrive from outer space sometime in November. Yup, you guessed it--the story involves space aliens!

Then on December 1st I'll release my holiday novelette, ST. CLAWS. Love the holidays!

My favorite football team is the Superbowl champs GREEN BAY PACKERS. Sorry Cowboys. But when GB is not on the gridiron--Go Dallas! Great Cheerleaders, too!

I enjoy the outdoors and as a side note I'm one of only a few individuals to ever swim across Wisconsin's chilly Lake Winnebago. Does this make me a better writer--probably not.

When I'm not working on my next project, I enjoy relaxing and fishing at our family vacation home in Oshkosh, Wisconsin.

`Mitch stood with the pole in hand. "Maybe we'll get lucky." He checked something on the reel then cast out the line. I followed the flash of silver through the air, arcing like a tiny meteor, until it landed with a small splash some ways behind the stern. Never in my wildest musings, would I have ever thought of fishing as a sexy sport. But watching Mitch cast that day - how his posture reflected both power and control, his arm moving back in a wide reverse swing, then whipping the rod tip back overhead, hearing the soft whine of the spinning spool - would forever change this perception. I found myself drawn in by some inexplicable force. I was part of something that kept growing, and would keep growing, until I was totally consumed. This was pure emotion, spreading throughout my body, filling each cell to satiation, then moving on to the next cell. I was being devoured alive. And I'd never felt better in my life.'

Kelly English, the chief editor for West Coast Today magazine, has just received news that her father has died leaving his estate to her and her mother. Kelly is 28 years old and hasn't seen nor heard from her father since she was 3 years old. It appears that he had no time for her and she had no time to disburse of his so called estate. But, due to a medical situation with her step-father, she has agreed to make the trip from her home in California to Oshkosh, WI. After all it shouldn't take long. From what her mother has told her over the years, her father never had much so the "estate" would be nothing more than a shack in the woods and could be taken care of in a weekend trip. So, after promising her fiancé that she would be back by Sunday evening for their dinner with his mother, Kelly takes off to get the task over with.

This book was the perfect length for my time constraints. I read the it on a 2 1/2 hour plane flight. Amazingly, Alan Nayes was able to pack all of the essential elements into this story, showing depth of character and conflict of emotion while moving the plot along at a steady pace. Barbary Point is Poignant and beautifully crafted, and though I know Mr. Nayes originally wrote thrillers, I sure hope he continues writing these stories. For those who love Nicholas Sparks' novels, put Alan Nayes romances at the top of your TBR pile.

Barbary Point is an amazingly written romance that catches your attention as soon as you start reading. As you dive deeper into the main character's, Kelly English's, life you can't help but keep reading. Alan Nayes is a very talented writer and I recommend this book to anyone.

Very well written. A lovely romance novel that I would recommend to anyone. Alan Nayes writes a wonderfully,romantic story that is very enjoyable to read. Once you meet the main character, Kelly English, you will not want to put it down. You find yourself wanting to know exactly what "Barbary Point" means to Kelly and how it changes her life forever. Thank you, Alan Nayes, for writing a romance novel that truly is romantic!

Kelly finds more than she bargained for when she makes a trip to Oshkosh to sell her deceased father's property. When she sets out to Oshkosh, Wisconsin, she plans to only stay the weekend. That one weekend turns into a week that changes her life forever. Her life is thrown off kilter when she meets Mitch, a fishing guide and her father's best friend. Mitch sheds light on the way Kelly's father felt about her, and from that moment on, Kelly sees the world in a different light. Mitch, much like her father, feels a strong connection to the ocean. At Kelly's request Mitch sets out to educate her a little bit on life in Barbary Point and just why her father loved it so much.

Having come from a similar situation with my own father, this touching novella really hit home with me. I felt I could relate to it in a way that I can't relate to most books I read. Kelly has felt one way about her father all her life and if afforded the opportunity to experience a new outlook on who her father really was. Solid characters and an intricately wound love story will leave you wishing this book had been longer. Mr. Nayes writes with intellectual flair that leaves you wanting to read more.

Barbary Point was a breath of fresh air. In this fast paced life I live in, I love to read to escape and Barbary Point was worth every minute I spent reading. I felt as though I could slow down and enjoy the story. I know nothing of fishing but left this story with a little bit of knowledge and a great appreciation for the life of a fisherman. I would have to say that this book evokes similar emotions to any of the Nicholas Sparks Books.

To Mr. Nayes I would like to say, this book was a job well done. It's evident that you researched the location of the book very well. I thoroughly enjoyed reading Kelly's story and I look forward to reading more of your work in the future.
