Who Is J. S. Allen?
I am a writer, linguist, historian, and ardent nature-lover from Kansas City, Missouri. My previous publications include a few short works in various online and print venues, including five pieces in the local academic periodical, Shorelines. Of these, two short stories (“The Buck” and “The Otter Kit Streamer”) won 1st and 2nd place in the 2015 and 2016 editions respectively.
I also maintain a historical weblog here.
