My stories are about strong heroines, sexy men, explosive chemistry, and finding a little bit of romance in unexpected places. My intention is to fill your your screen with pages and pages lavishly written, sinful scenes of sex and lust.

Keith Allen is a fiction writer, perhaps with an odd comfort of the macabre since most of his stories end up with at least a few people getting killed. He writes what he enjoys reading, which is fast paced mysteries, thrillers and stories that delve into the realm of science fiction and the paranormal. While not researching breaking news from the science community that will likely lead to the end of humanity or researching poisons, guns, and fascinating ways to cancel someone, Keith Allen enjoys spending time with his family, and his ever present and fluffy dog, Callie.

Born in the rolling foothills of the Appalachian Mountains, Robert C. Murray spent his childhood exploring every corner of his parents' yard, inventing worlds from the shrubs and stones. When not outside or ankle-deep in Lego bricks (more worlds to invent), he had his nose in a book: fiction, non-fiction, encyclopedias, even the occasional romp through the dictionary. Words and language and people fascinated him, and the primal urge to write was likewise there. Much like Hemingway, he used a toy typewriter (and his cub reporter sister) to put out "The Murray Times" to keep the house abreast of the news of the day. He also religiously kept a journal chronicling his life from the time he was 13 until his high ... read more
