Blaine Allen began writing romance novels after his wife tragically lost her battle with brain cancer. He had always been an avid reader and frequently had plots running through his mind; however, he never intended to write. Then one story idea was stuck in his head for two weeks, so he decided to write it down to excise it. However, writing became much more than that.
That idea became his first book, and now he’s writing book number nine, with the next book started and notes complete enough to write the story after that. In fact, he has plots, titles, and notes on dozens more possible story lines for the future.
Blaine writes the same kind of stories that he enjoys reading, steamy hot and sexy ones with a handsome hero and beautiful heroine who have adventures along the way and, of course, a happy ending.
He started writing just for his own enjoyment and satisfaction, but it has become Blaine’s pastime and hobby. Even the necessary research is fun. However, when he mentioned to people that he was writing now, they asked the standard question, “Are you going to publish your books?” This sexy romp novel is his first foray into publishing.
Blaine lived most of his life forty miles west of Chicago but now makes his home in the Illinois Quad Cities, only a mile from the Mississippi River. After four years in the US Navy on aircraft carriers in the Atlantic Fleet and two college degrees, most of his career was in logistics and supply-chain management.
When he isn’t writing, he’s reading, walking or biking along the river, or doing something fun with his two grown children and their families. He always has his voice recorder with him to capture new thoughts and ideas for future books.
