Alan Loewen lives with his wife and three sons in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania sharing their home with a Sheltie named Socrates, a rabbit, a demented parrot lovingly dubbed, The Death Chicken," and far too many cats.
You can always find him at CapClave and Anthrocon or else hiding in his office.
"Alan Loewen believes in magic, and I'm not talking about the dark, Gothic stuff that gets spelled with a "k" at the end. I mean he believes in real magic, the kind that makes us look at the world and feel that sense of wonder we had when we were young. You can call it magic, fantasy, or myth, but it's based on the very cornerstone of his work: hope. Alan Loewen is handing out hope, and we're all the better for it if we grab some." - Donald Francis, author of Advent
