Award-winning author Allie Marie grew up in Virginia, where her favorite childhood pastime was reading Nancy Drew and Trixie Belden mysteries. She never expected to grow up to be a real-life police officer herself. Eventually work her way up through the ranks, Allie retired—four times—as her experiences kept leading her to other law enforcement adventures in the US as well as overseas.
After her final “retirement,” Allie soon embarked on a quest to fulfill a long-time dream—to write mysteries and crime thrillers. She was derailed from those mystery plans, however, when she began researching her family tree. Inspired by ancestors she discovered, she began The True Colors Series, a paranormal mystery series with modern local settings and colonial history, which has garnered multiple awards and leads to a spinoff collection, The True Spirits Trilogy, to start in 2021.
In November 2020, she released a standalone historical, again with modern local settings but with a WW1 mystery. Not only does this story introduce the central character of the spinoff True Spirits Trilogy, it includes familiar character from the original series.
She has contributed short stories to the Tis the Season Sweet Romance Novelettes and the bestselling Feisty Heroines Romance Collection of Short Stories. She has contributed her first murder mystery to an anthology planned for a 2021 release. Those other mystery stories? They still patiently wait for their turn.
Besides family, Allie's passions are travel (anywhere), and camping with her husband, Jack. Visit her on her website at AllieMarieBooks.wordpress.com.
