Anna D Allen lives deep in the woods with too many books and not enough dogs. She spends most winters snowed-in and trying to remember what "warm" was... which she vaguely recalls experiencing in the 20th Century. She holds a Bachelor of Science and a Master of Arts in Language and Literature. She is a recipient of the Writers of the Future award and a member of Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America, but she also has a great passion for Regency Romances. Her future plans include growing tomatoes and cleaning out the freezer. When not writing or reading, she can be found in the kitchen. She is currently writing a Regency Romance novel but will undoubtedly use volume two of The Downings of Choccolocco as an excuse to avoid working on it.
