Allie Harrison is the author of seven published novels. Her first, DREAM A DEADLY DREAM, won the Colorado Romance Writers Award of Excellence. Her sixth, NO FEAR, placed third in the Beacon Awards. Allie lives in Southern Illinois. When she isn't busy creating new characters and dropping them into exciting, usually creepy, places, she's reading, crafting, doing fun things with her family such as paddling in one of the wood strip canoes her husband makes, searching for great old houses or other historic places to explore, or working her day job as a nurse in the operating room.
