About the Author

Before Alan stepped off the corporate merry-go-round, he had an eclectic (some might say disjointed) career. As an engineer, he worked on nuclear submarines, supervised assembly workers in factories, facilitated technology transfer from the Star Wars program, and learned to stack washing machines three high in a warehouse with a forklift. He even started his own recycling and waste reduction newsletter business. Now he writes fiction. Alan is the author of the Agatha-nominated DIAMONDS FOR THE DEAD. He also wrote KILLER ROUTINE and DEADLY CAMPAIGN in the Last Laff Mystery Series. As Zak Allen, he's written THE TASTE, FIRST TIME KILLER, and RIDE-ALONG. His most recent book, RUNNING FROM THE PAST, was a Kindle Scout selection and was published by Kindle Press.
