Allie Burton didn’t realize having so many jobs would become great research material for the stories she writes. She has been everything from a fitting room attendant to a bike police officer to a professional mascot escort. She has lived on three continents and in four states and has studied art, fashion design, marine biology, and advertising.
When her kids asked, “When are you going to write a story we can read?” she switched from adult novels to Young Adult and hasn’t looked back. She is the author of several young adult series including Cinderella Assassin, A Glass Slipper Adventure (https://www.allieburton.com/CinderellaAssassin.html ) and Atlantis Riptide, Lost Daughters of Atlantis. ( https://www.allieburton.com/riptide.html ). Her latest book, Snow Wicked White, is the 4th book in A Glass Slipper Adventure series.
Allie is a member of several writing organizations. Currently, she splits her time between Colorado and Arizona where she loves to ski, golf, and hike.
His first book, The Wizard of Simonton Pond was published as an ebook in 2011. That was followed by numerous short stories published in Level Best Books New England crime anthologies. He is currently working on Hardscrabble Kids a short story collection about Maine teens who are finding ways to overcome impossible situations, and Don't Say It a historical YA book about a high school junior in 1969 who's beyond fed up with being treated as less than because of her gender.
When not writing, he reads extensively, mostly in the YA genre and reviews almost every book he reads. Gardening, winning sweepstakes and enjoying three grandkids rounds out his most important activities.
