Kenn Allan


"There is no greater reward than having one's work enjoyed by others; indeed, it is the reader who validate the writer's very existence. I am certain without their continued enthusiasm and support, the writer known as Kenn Allan would cease to exist." (Kenn Allan)

More of a storyteller than a poet, Kenn Allan’s “Poems for Non-Poetry Lovers” have appeared in many print and electronic publications and continue to gain popularity among readers who generally avoid reading poetry of any kind. Known for his reclusive lifestyle, he rarely grants appearances or interviews, insisting, “There is nothing about me which cannot be easily deduced from my writings.” Kenn currently resides in the Pacific Northwest with his wife, daughter, three grandchildren, and an undisclosed number of cats.

Smashwords book reviews by Kenn Allan

  • Better Verse on Sep. 07, 2010

    I LOVE the clever turning of a phrase and the subtle twisting of a rhyme. There's some good stuff here.
  • Joy in a Box on Jan. 05, 2011

    I enjoy this type of story; they unfold gradually with few indications exactly where they're heading until the final paragraph. Overall, a most satisfying read.
