Idabel Allen serves up the best in new home cooked Southern Literature in the tradition of Eudora Welty, Charles Portis, William Faulkner and Flannery O’Connor.

First and foremost a storyteller, Idabel’s books are all grounded in the same character-driven reality that holds the reader’s attention long after the story is finished.

Idabel brings over fifteen years of experience as a professional writer and editor to the literary table. She attended the Iowa Writers’ Workshop Fiction program and is the author of Headshots, Cursed! My Devastatingly Brilliant Campaign and Rooted. Idabel’s books are available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and independent bookstores across this fine land.

Idabel has been published in Writer’s Digest, TripFiction, Women Writers, Women’s Books and featured in Southern Writers Magazine.

When not burrowing in the written word, Idabel is generally up to no good with her family, dogs and herd of antagonistic cows.
