ABOUT DC

BACKGROUND

DC Alden is a UK-based thriller writer, filmmaker and screenwriter. Born in London, DC’s career has encompassed a variety of roles, from soldier to technical consultant, including work on many popular films and TV shows.

As well as writing, DC has always loved the movies. Answering a call for former soldiers, he worked for eight months on HBO’s Band of Brothers, alongside industry heavyweights such as Stephen Spielberg, Tom Hanks, Damien Lewis, Michael Fassbender and Tom Hardy. The experience reignited his lifelong passion for film and screenwriting, and a few months later he was enrolled at a London film school, making several short films and a documentary about life on set (Band of Brothers – An Extra’s Life), using previously unseen footage. DC has also written, produced and directed a live action trailer for his next thriller Chosen, and continues to work on various writing and film projects.

WRITING

His first novel, Invasion, grew from a film script he conceived while researching a short for the Cannes Film Festival. A military thriller, set in a world of failing western economies threatened by a united Islamic super-state, Invasion sold out its entire print run in three months and continues to garner strong reviews on Amazon. These themes continued in The Horse at the Gates, another fast-paced thriller set in the near future that tells the story of a political coup that attempts to drastically change the face of Britain.

Dealing with highly topical and sometimes sensitive issues, DC’s writing is thought-provoking and always commands attention. His work continues to be inspired by world events, both seen and unseen, and the ‘dark actors’ who inhabit the shadows. His work encompasses a hugely entertaining mix of mystery, conspiracy, action/adventure, political and military/war genres. With a few zombies thrown in for good measure.

BAND OF BROTHERS – AN EXTRA’S LIFE

A behind the scenes look at the experiences of the extras who worked on the HBO mini-series Band of Brothers. Shot entirely on the set in Hatfield, England, this short documentary provides a rare insight into their daily routine, what it meant to tell the story of Easy Company, and to be a part of one of the most successful TV series of all time.

What they're saying about DC's books...

“A real page turner. Well written and frighteningly believable.”

“Quite simply, Invasion is without doubt one of the best novels I have read in a long time.”

“Move over James Patterson, I’m making room for DC Alden. Quite possibly the best book I’ve ever read.”

“Superbly written and hard to put down. Highly recommended.”
