Vicki Allen 

Novelist Vicki Allens writing career began andalmost endedas a 15-year-old teenager. Her first novel, For Mollywas started in high school, tossed into a closet to hibernate, rediscovered and finished as an adulttook 20 years to complete. In contrast, Allens fourth novel, Drink One to Me, Christian Bennett, was completed in only five months and 29 days, a personal best for the author!

Drink One to Me, Christian Bennett came to me in a huge, inspirational wave on April 1, 2008 while I was sitting in my car, waiting for my husband: Storyline, characters, dialogueeverything. Boom! It was incredible. I went home and immediately began to write. Within two sleep-deprived weeks, I had written 150 pages. Vicki Allen

Known for her ability to create poignant stories that speak to southern sentimentalities, Christian Bennett is a bit of a deviation from Allens previous works.

Christian Bennett is different and Im very excited about that. It is my personal favorite, and in my opinion, the best Ive written to date." Vicki Allen
