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.

But he likes almost all types of popular music including country music.
After working his entire life as a computer programmer, he is now retired and he decided to share his love of the music and of the performers by writing books that discuss the life and music of the various people who have meant so much to him over the years.

I've traveled America through my job and have now settled in to one place.

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

I'm a globe trekker, explorer, sometimes expat and always a lover of books. With an interest in criminal justice, I enjoy creating tales filled with grit, murder and mayhem.I couldn't imagine a better world than being able to create stories from my sometimes dark imagination.
If you hear someone singing karoke, dancing Gangnum Style or just having an all around good time, then you might see me there. I love Castle, the movie Se7en, and Red Dragon by Thomas Harris.
Yep, murder follows me everywhere!

As I was growing up, I read every kind of fantasy novel I could. I was an absolute Star Wars geek/fanatic. When I got older, I fell embarrassingly hard for historical romance.
I've been writing all my life, but only recently picked it up as a serious endeavor because long ago someone told me no one makes a living writing, and I'd be throwing away my education on some crazy dream.
