Dawn Allen is a professor and workshop presenter, the founding member of critique group, Novel Clique, and an active member of Midwest Pen and Ink. Her stories have appeared in Soft Whispers; A Fly in Amber; and articles with First Opinions, Second Reactions. Her short story, Taking Out the Trash, is in an anthology of revenge stories, Don’t Tread on Me. This says a lot about her and her writing. She holds an MFA in Writing from the University of Nebraska.

She can’t cook, but she had the good sense to marry a man who can. Her two boys live in Oklahoma, and she’s proud of them every day. They are good human beings and gainfully employed. She and her husband have horses and recently relocated so they can enjoy them every day. Life is never dull. Her parents live close and have been among her biggest writing supporters. Unfortunately (for them), they also provided her with a lot of fodder for her stories.
