Allison Brennan

    New York Times and USA Today bestseller Allison Brennan is the author of more than two dozen thrillers and numerous short stories. A former consultant in the California State Legislature, she lives in Northern California with her husband Dan and their five children.

    Crime fiction, mysteries, and romantic suspense have always been Allison’s favorites, so it’s no surprise that her romantic thrillers have a dark suspense edge. Reviewers have called her books “terrifying,” “mesmerizing,” “fast-paced,” “pulse-pounding,” “wonderfully complex,” “layered,” and “a master of suspense — tops in the genre.” As Lisa Gardner says, “Brennan knows how to deliver.”

    Writing three books a year is more than a full-time job, and so is raising five kids, but Allison believes life is too short to be bored. When she’s not writing, she’s reading, playing video games, watching old movies or new television shows, or attending her kids’ sporting events and school plays.

    Allison is currently writing the Lucy Kincaid/Sean Rogan romantic thriller series about an FBI recruit who believes the rules are there for a reason, and a cold case mystery series starring Maxine Revere, who believes rules are meant to be broken. Next up for Lucy is THE LOST GIRLS in November 2016; next up for Max is POISONOUS in April 2016. As Sandra Brown says, “Buckle up and brace yourself for Maxine Revere.”
