Author Mark W. Allen is an Emmy-award winning TV writer and producer. As a photojournalist, he had the chance to cover numerous events in a variety of markets around the country, including coverage of hurricane damage along the Texas Gulf Coast. It was during these times that Mark began to think about writing a novel, with a hurricane and its aftermath as a central character.

Knowledge of the area, and a fascination with hurricanes, came from early in Mark's life. His father worked for a NASA in Houston. Talk of the Great Galveston Hurricane came up often when a potential storm threatened the area. In several instances, his family's close proximity to the Gulf led to hours spent in evacuation shelters, listening to radio reports tracking an approaching storm.

After a decade of working as a photojournalist, Mark made a foray into commercial television and film, writing and directing a festival-winning feature film in 2001, and producing an Emmy award-winning network program in 2012. All the while, Mark enjoyed researching the history behind the Galveston Hurricane of 1900.

Ill Wind is Mark's first novel. He has several titles planned, and is currently writing the second book of the Isla De Malhado trilogy, "Campeachy", which takes place on the island of Galveston in the 1820's, and tells the story of the privateer Jean LaFitte.
