J.D Allen 

I attended The Ohio State University and earned a degree in forensic anthropology and a creative writing minor. Writing Mysteries was not my first career or my second. Life's journey meanders. I feel it's never too late to reach for the brass ring. With the publication of the Sin City Investigation Series, my dreams of publishing gritty mysteries have been realized. I believe in giving back to the writing community that has supported me through the years. I'm a member of the Bouchercon World Mystery Convention National board and president of the Triangle Chapter of Sisters in Crime. I speak on the basics of crime scene investigation, voice, and public speaking.
