Allan is a professional actor, educator, writer and former stand-up comedian. During his years on stage, he’s gotten to participate in countless battles – some even with other people – involving longswords, rapiers, daggers, staves, pistols, bottles, loaves of French bread and, of course, his grimy little fists. As an actor, he trained under Tony Church, Malcolm Morrison, Christopher Selbie, and a host of other worthy Englishmen. Allan is a lifelong fan of epic fantasy and horror, so you can just imagine how much he loves Grimdark. Having completed his epic five-book series, Immortal Treachery and the stand-alone This Thing of Darkness, Allan is currently working on a steampunk novel...and a bunch of other stuff. His books are available in paperback and kindle formats on Amazon. Allan lives in Seattle with his wife, son and two cats.
