Jack Allenís childhood passion for comic books evolved into an appreciation of the selfless hero who fights against evil, the hero who fights for those who canít fight for themselves. Josh McGowan, the hero of Allenís first book Change of Heart, is an amalgamation of characters from fiction and real life that he has admired for years.
Allen is a native of Michigan and grew up in the Detroit area, where he still lives with his new family and his puppy dog Peanut. When heís not writing he might be out racing around the city in his red sportscar with his wife.
Allen has completed two other books in the Josh McGowan series, An Innocent Among Them and Widow of Calcutta, as well as Breathe of the Flesh, a spy story set in New York during World War II. Currently, he is working on the fourth Josh McGowan book, The Lennox Conspiracy.
