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.

She currently writes the Lucy Kincaid/Sean Rogan thriller series, and launched the Quinn & Costa thrillers this year with THE THIRD TO DIE. Catherine Coulter called it an "amazing new series" and Kirkus Reviews says Kara Quinn is "A strong and damaged protagonist as compelling as Lisbeth Salander."

RT Book Reviews calls Allison “a master of suspense” and her books “haunting,” “mesmerizing,” “pulse-pounding” and “emotionally complex.”

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 ›
