Allen Wold

Literary Guest
Allen Wold was born in south-western Michigan, finished high school in Tucson, Arizona, and graduated from college, in Claremont, California, where he later met his wife, Diane. They married in 1972, and moved to North Carolina, where he began his career as a full time writer. In 1986, he became a full time father. In 2003, he became a full time writer again, when his daughter, Darcy, went off to college.

He has fourteen published novels, two collections of short stories, and a reminiscence about his life with cats.

His epic heroic fantasy, The Black Ring (six volumes) has been published by Double Dragon. He is working on a pseudo-victorian faerie novel, A Thing Forgotten; a bizarre haunted house story, The Empty House, that is far too long; a collection of original stories about the Star Kings; and other stuff.

He has been running his version of The Writers’ Workshop at conventions for over thirty years, and a Plotting Workshop, which has been well received, for more than ten.
Allen is a member of SFWA.
