Come Ask Marian Allen Some Questions

Introducing Marian Allen!


About Marian Allen (from Amazon Author Central):

For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved telling and being told stories. At the age of six, I was told somebody got paid for writing books and movies and television shows; I abandoned my previous ambition (beachcomber), and became a writer.

I’ve had stories in anthologies, on-line and print publications, including Marion Zimmer Bradley’s Sword & Sorceress anthologies 22 and 23, on coffee cans, and the wall of an Indian restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky.

Small town life agrees with me. I like the interconnectedness of everything and everybody. I try to remember, in my books and stories, that no one exists in isolation, but in a web of connections.

Most of my work is fantasy, science fiction and/or mystery, though I write anything else that suits the story and character.
