Fiction writer and educational consultant

You've just surfed onto the official page of Trina Allen. I am a longtime writer and educational consultant.


To live again--A ghost story just in time for Halloween
It's not a typical ghost story because it is about a woman and her dog. Tired of living in fear, Allsion adopts Vanquisher, a scrappy pit bull terrier mix facing euthanasia. To live again is my first and favorite story and the most autobiographical of any of my stories. Winner of Write Around the Block’s January 2008 short story contest.

I currently write reading passages and questions for educational tests as my day job, and blog and write stories for adults by night. After a hiatus from writing fiction due to the death of my daughter and other life-changing events, I'm back to writing fiction again.

Educational consulting

I work for educational testing companies to write, review, and evaluate test items and passages, as well as searching for passages from published works.
