Mr. Allyn is Executive Director for a leading healthcare manufacturing and sales corporation. He has a passion for sports, writing, singing, and a passion for the understanding of human behavior. His psychology background, and his understanding of what motivates us to do the things we do, provides him with a unique sense of character development. Combined with extensive training in creative writing, this allows him to paint us vivid mental pictures with his words. His characters become real to us. We are allowed to feel what they feel, see what they see, hear what they hear, smell what they smell, and taste what they taste. They become our best friends, or our worst enemies. We truly care whether they win or lose, and whether they live or die.
Mr. Allyn has been a science fiction buff since he became obsessed with the original Star Trek series in 1968. He is 48 years old, has been married for 26 years, and has three children.
Mr. Allyn has two published books to his credit, and has written many songs, poems, and short stories. His poem 'The Magic in the Lighted Sky' received the Editor's Choice Award for poetry by The National Library of Poetry in 1994 and was judged in the top 3% of all poems submitted for publication in Journey of the Mind that year. Several sequels to The Cloning of Legends are planned.
