Colonel Jon L. Allen, USAF (ret.) “was educated in California, Canada and Connecticut. Upon receiving his B.A. degree in history, he served for five years as an Air Force navigator and public affairs officer, then continued as an active reservist for another twenty-seven years. From 1958 to 1962, he was a reporter and feature writer for two New England newspapers. Subsequently, he spent twenty-seven years in corporate public relations with an international airline and three petroleum companies, prior to retiring in 1989.”  Jon L. Allen is the author of Faculty for Murder: A Ruben Keene Mystery and Not for Attribution.


According to the book description of Faculty for Murder: A Ruben Keene Mystery, “A popular history professor misses a Monday morning lecture, having been brutally murdered over the weekend. This police procedural, set in Arizona, introduces Lieutenant Ruben Keene, who gets more than he bargained for--the disappearance of a child, a hint of espionage, money laundering and a crash course on the history of the Spanish conquistadors who explored the American Southwest for God, glory and gold, not necessarily in that order. During his investigation, Keene has to deal with a dapper Chinese-American medical examiner, an aggressive newspaper reporter, an athletic FBI agent, a Hungarian immigrant and several attractive women.”

According to the book description of Not for Attribution, “The foibles of clients and idiosyncrasies of chief executive officers, told as only their public relations and public affairs staffers can, make for amusing, wry and true stories in Not For Attribution. Annual meetings, annual reports, press conferences, media relations and special events don't always go as planned, sometimes with hilarious results. Not For Attribution is the first ever volume to contain more than two hundred such entertaining anecdotes, contributed by members of their rapidly-growing profession with "real world" experience.”
