Alexander McNabb has been working as a journalist, editor and magazine publisher in the Middle East for some 30 years. Today he consults on media, publishing and digital communications.
Alexander's first serious novel was the critically acclaimed 'Olives - A Violent Romance', a work exploring the attitudes, perceptions and conflicts of the Middle East, exposing a European sensibility to the multi-layered world of life on the borders of Palestine. Published in 2011, the book triggered widespread controversy, finding a receptive audience in the Middle East and beyond.
'Olives' was followed by testosterone-soaked international spy thriller 'Beirut - An Explosive Thriller'. His third Middle East-based novel, 'Shemlan - A Deadly Tragedy', is about a man dying of cancer unearthing the deadly secrets of his past.
'A Decent Bomber', set in Ireland, tells the story of a retired IRA bomb-maker forced to resume his old trade, pitching 'old terror' against 'new terror' in a battle of wits between an Irish farmer with a violent past and Somali extortionists with a questionable future.
Alexander's latest, 'Birdkill', is a psychological thriller about Robyn Shaw, a teacher who has lost her recent past to 'The Void', a terrible incident she can't recall, which nobody seems to be in a hurry to tell her about. Her friend Mariam embarks on a race to uncover the truth before Robyn is driven over the edge into insanity.
