More About the Author

Michael Allen is best known for writing popular mainstream fiction, and he's been doing it successfully for more years than he cares to remember. (Actually his first novel was published in 1963.) Here are some quotes from reviews of his work:

'Absolutely first class' The Bookseller
'Solidly constructed' New York Times Book Review
'A pleasing narrative style' Daily Mail
'Beguiling entertainment' Kirkus Reviews
'Don't miss it' The Observer

These days, Michael publishes all his new work in Kindle format. Much of his earlier work is now out of print, and some of the printed books listed on Amazon are only available secondhand; but most of this earlier output will gradually be republished in Kindle versions. In addition, there are some brand-new publications, listed on Amazon Kindle for the first time anywhere. To take a look at Michael's output and see what appeals to you, click on the Kindle category below and scroll down.

Michael Allen is also known for his practical books for writers:

How to Write a Short Story that Works
The Truth about Writing
On the Survival of Rats in the Slush Pile

From 2004-07, Michael wrote a daily blog, the Grumpy Old Bookman. Still available online, this contains over one million words of essays, book reviews, and useful information for writers. Michael has recently reopened the blog for occasional reviews, news, and opinion pieces.

Michael Allen has some good points. 27 Aug. 2013
By MJ - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book is a good introduction for someone who is new to writing. It didn't explore any new territory for me as I have been a writer for a while. I only give it three stars because it didn't fit my needs, rather than that it wasn't well written.
Very interesting reading. It is not a "how to" ... 21 July 2014

Very interesting reading. It is not a "how to" book. Michael Allen talks about the importance of emotion but doesn't tell you much about how to do that.
