An avid knitter, coffee junkie, and devoted chocoholic, Allie Pleiter writes both fiction and non-fiction. The enthusiastic but slightly untidy mother of two, Allie spends her days writing books, doing laundry, running carpools, and finding new ways to avoid housework. She grew up in Connecticut, holds a BS in Speech from Northwestern University, spent fifteen years in the field of professional fundraising, and currently lives in suburban Chicago, Illinois. The “dare from a friend” to begin writing nine years ago has given rise to a career spanning two parenting books, eight novels including the multi-nominated MY SO-CALLED LOVE LIFE, and various national speaking engagements on faith, women’s issues, and writing.

I'm so glad you enjoyed the Gordon Falls books. There won't be anymore--I'm launching a new series set on a Texas bison ranch in February 2016. I hope you'll like that contemporary series just as much. My historical are mostly 2 book series along with some of the LIH continuity series. Most recently HOMEFRONT HERO and THE DOCTOR'S UNDOING are connected, as well as MASKED BY MOONLIGHT and MISSION OF HOPE. Thanks for your question!

I would love to be able to offer it internationally, but the shipping ends up costing twice as much as the book (often more!), and authors like myself just don't have the funds to personally cover such expenses. Occasionally my publisher does give-aways like these, and they are able to fund international shipping, so keep an eye out for those opportunities. They occasionally run very good ebook sales--as low as $.99 or $1.99, so keep an eye out for those as well.(less)

My first free-range projects!

Home on the Free Range...
I’ve only been a “free range knitter” since December, and it’s been an interesting process. 
Because of the way DestiKNITions worked, I spent 90% of my time knitting projects given to me by yarn stores. I enjoyed the adventure—I tried things I might not have dared otherwise, and learned loads of new skills. But it also meant that in the past eight years I have very rarel...
