Allen worked as a newsroom journalist in Tokyo and London and a travel writer throughout Southeast Asia for more than a decade. She is now an award-winning novelist; her first two novels, "Earth" and "Air," won the Independent Publishers' award. The novels are part of "The Elemental Journey" series: One protagonist comes of age over five books in a world rocked by climate change and increasing instability.
