TS Alan was born outside Buffalo, NY. After attending high school he entered into a two-year community college to study Communications and Media Arts. There he became involved in the college’s radio station as a radio personality, under the pseudonym of J.D. Hollywood. After a year with WNCB radio he also became the station’s Promotions Director. J.D. Hollywood was also one of two names he used as a music reporter and Associate Editor for Buffalo Backstage, a local music magazine.

After graduating with an Associate Degree, he took a short hiatus to become a tour manager for a local punk-rock band prior to pursuing a Bachelor Degree at the State University College at Buffalo, where he studied English Literature and Writing.

During this time he wrote poetry extensively, won several poetry awards and was included in two anthologies of poetry published by World of Poetry Press. This was also the time he had a great interest in short story writing.

Upon graduation he found work as a proofreader for the local phone directory and newspaper, the Buffalo News. Writing in the evenings and on the weekends, he continued to produce short stories and to work on his first novel.

After moving to Manhattan he began a career in the music business as tour manager, concert producer, and later co-founder of an independent music label. After a long hiatus, he returned to writing in late 2007.

TS Alan currently resides in the East Village of New York City. He is no longer producing records or going on tour and is concentrating on his writing career. He is currently writing for zombietraining.com and working on his second novel.
