The Author


Brett Allen is a husband, father, and former U.S. Army Cavalry Officer, who deployed to Afghanistan in 2009 with 3rd Squadron, 71st Cavalry Regiment of the 10th Mountain Division, in support of Operation Enduring Freedom.  On deployment, Brett served as his Squadron’s air operations planner, lead bootleg movie scout, and was the linchpin in Headquarters coffee production.  His experiences, good, bad, and odd, made him uniquely qualified to pen his debut novel, Kilroy Was Here, a tongue-in-cheek look at American operations in Afghanistan.  

Brett has written numerous short stories, including Project Valhalla, which was recently announced as the winner of the 2022 Colonel Darron L. Wright Award for the Line of Advance Literary Journal, The Kherwar, originally published on The Veteran’s Writing Project’s website, “O-Dark-Thirty,” and Pine River Raid, which has been published in the Fourth Edition of the Walloon Writers Review in Michigan.
