Bio: – Allie Jean Allie Jean was born with an overactive imagination. As a child, her days were spent inventing stories, directing her sisters in made-up plays or telling elaborate ghost stories. Her mind never took breaks or shut down, even when she slept. When her eyes closed at night, she would have vivid dreams complete with extensive, elaborate plot lines, and good overcoming evil villains. She was encouraged by her parents, even at a young age, to write down her tales, and it has remained a somewhat-secret hobby. It became a means to escape from the drama of real life into one of the many worlds she created. Now living in California with her husband of ten years, her love of storytelling had taken a backseat with the arrival of their four children. However, she always found time to write down her thoughts on whatever was handy, including a stray diaper or two while rocking a sleeping child in the middle of the night when her characters begged for attention as well. As a busy wife, mother, and working full-time outside the home, somehow she has been able to write down her relentless characters’ story. Her once-secret hobby and private world is now released for others to enjoy. Nothing would make Allie happier than to spend more time at home with her family and continue writing on a full-time basis.
