Writer and Educator

You've just surfed onto the official page of Trina Allen. I am a longtime writer whose stories have appeared in magazines such as The Dead Mule, Chiron Review, Word Catalyst, Luna Station Quarterly, and Thunder Sandwich. To support my writing habit, I work as a Senior Assessment Specialist for an educational testing company--I publish reading comprehension tests.

I love to convert the stories in my imagination onto the written page. I create characters who are ordinary people, but do extraordinary things, things that I wish I could do. See my Short stories page to get to know some of my favorite characters. Be prepared for a bump or two along the way.
