D.S. Allen is a fiction writer in the middle grade category. After a lifelong desire to become a published author, she is excitedly anticipating the debut of the first book in her fantasy series, Keepers of Talamh: The Misplaced Child.

Born and raised in snowy Central New York, she lives with her immeasurably supportive husband, her 9-year-old daughter, 4 cats, and a dog. When she’s not writing or vacuuming up cat hair, she enjoys horror movies, Halloween, crafting, and taking road trips.

She began writing The Misplaced Child in March of 2020 for her daughter who was diagnosed with Tourette Syndrome at the age of five. Her daughter’s love of fantasy as well as her resiliency and strength were a major inspiration for the main character.
