Independent Author and Illustrator

Hello there! I'm OA Allen, an independent writer and artist. I blend science fiction with cutting-edge physics and esoteric knowledge. With a graduate degree in Information from Vic Uni in New Zealand, my works are intricately crafted worlds enriched by deep research. From my childhood in the Pacific Northwest, libraries have been my sanctuaries, exploring the arcane philosophies reflected in my storytelling and art. My metaphysical influences stem from academic study in philosophy and anthropology. I love a good conspiracy theory! I have also found advanced wisdom in the first nations teachings I received from family, which I often incorporate. 

Though my strength as a writer is in concepts and world-building, finding success in life, despite personal hardship, is the heartbeat of my work. I infuse my characters with tales of resilience. From widowhood, single parenthood, and chronic illness, many of my characters endure as I have endured. In reflection on the terrible, they find beauty. In the absurd, humor. In suffering, clarity of purpose. In loss, the seeds of new beginnings. 

Current projects include a coloring book on the Mandela Effect and "Ghost Trucker," about kidnappings amid an interdimensional labor shortage.

Today, I prefer the quiet life, sipping coffee and walking around Vermont’s Green Mountains with my miniature schnauzer.
