Jeffrey B. Allen was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts in 1953.
He graduated High School from Central Bucks East in Doylestown.
He studied art at Bloomsburg University for two years, before
attending Boston University, where he majored in history and
minored in set design, and fine art. A one year hiatus in the form of a
hitchhiking trip, helped appease his restless, and inquisitive nature.
Allen attributes that early journey to laying the foundations for his
strong views on politics, and religion. Later, he traveled through Europe
and Mexico, forming some strong opinions concerning the relationship
between history, politics and religion. Those years of learning, searching, and questioning have contributed greatly to the
philosophical depth of Allen's writing.
Allen graduated from Millersville State University in Architectural
design, and taught for two years, while also working toward his
Masters Degree at Temple University in Philadelphia. After a brief
teaching career, he created his own Architectural woodworking firm
By 1982, Allen was owner and president of Artistic Furnishings
Incorporated, a design house and manufacturer of custom
Architectural millwork. The company employed designers, artisans,
and support staff. His work can be seen throughout eastern
Pennsylvania, New York, and New Jersey in private residences, and
businesses. During those years, he traveled at home and abroad and
studied the Architectural works, both classical and modern, within
every city he visited. The inventiveness of the architect, and the
genius of structural engineering amazed him. "So much of history
can be discovered within the architecture of civilized man."
In 1996, Allen received his fifty ton U.S. Coastguard captain's license,
and followed that with extensive sailing adventures, and chartered
voyages. In 2006, Allen received the Holt Businessman-of-the-year
award. In 2007, He sold his Architectural woodworking business,
and soon after published his first novel, "GONEAWAY INTO THE LAND."
He writes as the Interior Design Specialist for the Lehigh Valley Examiner, and contributes articles as an expert author for publication,
through Ezine Articles and other internet sites. Allen is currently working with a new publisher, and expects his second novel, BENEATH
THE QUARRY WATERS, to be published soon.
Today, Jeffrey resides in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. He consults in
the field of interior space planning, although most of his time is
devoted to writing.
