E. A. Allen is a Writer, History Professor, and former CIA Intelligence Officer. He brings all three together in his series of Edwardian mysteries, following the exploits of France's most formidable detective of the Belle Epoque, Gerard de Montclaire. The Montclaire Mysteries feature engaging tales of intrigue, revenge, jealousy, espionage, political corruption, and international conspiracy, embedded within the actual historical texture of the Victorian-Edwardian Era. Real historical actors mix with fictional characters in plots and situations that are plausible, and in which both speak with voices that are authentic to the era.
E.A.Allen served during Bush and Clinton Administrations as the CIA's Senior Analyst for European Security Affairs, and as Deputy National Intelligence Officer for Europe. He has lectured widely on International Relations and has published more than a score of historical articles in scholarly journals--notably The Journal of British Studies and French Historical Studies. He now lives in his native Northwest Arkansas, where he raises cattle, promotes Historic Preservation, continues to lecture on International Relations, and teaches Modern European History and World Civilizations.
