New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Allison Brennan believes that life is too short to be bored, so she had five children and writes three books a year.

40 books and numerous short stories later, Allison relocated in 2019 from Northern California to Arizona with her husband and two youngest children.

Thank you Michelle!

Yes, there are two new Lucy Kincaid books coming out next year. BEST LAID PLANS will be out on August 4, 2015 and NO GOOD DEED will be out October 27, 2015. We only had one Lucy book out this year because I launched the new Max Revere series last year, and I wanted a little time earlier this year to finish my Seven Deadly Sins supernatural thriller series (MORTAL SIN, which is out next month.) BUT next year will have one Max book and two Lucy books!

Thanks so much for writing.(less)

Writing Tip: Don’t be afraid to slash and burn

I deleted two chapters today and I feel good. Okay, not great, but good. No writer likes to delete their words. We want to think that everything we write is amazing when we write it and worth reading … but it’s…Read more ›
