About The Author
Retired Major and former Paratrooper Chris Allen explodes onto the action thriller scene with his literary brainchild Intrepid, featuring elite agent Alex Morgan on a series of life-and-death black ops for Interpol. His heart pounding stories, borne from hard-won experience, are fast earning their place on the shelves alongside other servicemen-turned-thriller writers like Andy McNab, Alistair Maclean, Jack Higgins and Frederick Forsyth. More on Chris Allen.
Last night, I had the privilege of speaking at the Willoughby Hotel Authors Club.
The pub was buzzing and we had a fantastic room and bar upstairs in which to mingle, sip on a beer and a Malfajiri Cocktail (based on the small African nation in which Defender plays out a lot of the action).
We talked about my writing journey, from when I finished serving in East Timor in 1999, as well as the publishing trajectory I've experienced since 2010. I enjoyed keeping people up-to-date on the latest of what Alex Morgan is up to in Avenger and hearing their reactions to my stories so far.
