Author Biography: Von Allan was born red-headed and freckled in Arnprior, Ontario, just in time for STAR WARS: A NEW HOPE. The single child of two loving but troubled parents, Von split most of his childhood between their two homes and, consequently, spent a lot of time in the worlds of comics and wrestling. He managed an independent bookstore in downtown Ottawa for many years, all the while working on story ideas in his spare time. Eventually, he decided to make the leap to a creative life.
Von currently lives in Ottawa, Canada, with his writer/editor geek wife, Moggy, and their rescue husky dog, Corbin.
