DONALD D. ALLAN is an award-winning author for the New Druids epic fantasy series. He is best known for his knowledge of just about everything – just ask him, he’ll tell you. He takes being a geek to massively huge geek levels – like level twelve. That’s pretty high. Mostly, he’s an introvert pretending to be an extrovert and so far, he’s fooling everybody. Wine helps.

He loves lying around and planning his next activities, such as yard work, house repairs, cleaning, cooking, etc. He plans a lot, but never really completes it. But planning is everything. He does complete novels though, and that surprises most people. They say “YOU wrote a book?”

Donald lives with his wife Marilyn, son James, daughter Katherine, and dog Woody, in Ottawa, Canad

I will most likely miss so many great fictional couples from the novels I have read and I apologise in advance for that.

The Deverry Cycle by Katherine Kerr probably has the most memorable couple that first comes to mind. Nevyn (pronounced No-One) and Jill live in a Celtic rebirth cycle where Nevyn must fulfil his oath to the gods. The love that spans rebirth and generations moves from novel to novel and pulls you along, hoping for closure and a final joy of an oath fulfilled.

I highly recommend the Deverry books. They are among my favourites.(less)

Most fantasy worlds are not like that and I can't think of any, off hand. I think perhaps I would like to be an elf in Middle Earth about to embark on the ship to the West. I always wondered what lay to the West.(less)

Musings and News

Hi, folks. It’s been a while. My desire to write my fantasy series took a turn and I have been exploring other genres. That being said, it is NaNoWriMo month and I have pledged to write 50K words in Gaea, the final volume of the New Druids series. I mentioned the writer’s block before and […]
