Hello! I'm Sandy Allen.

I'm a writer of true stories. 

I write and talk about stuff like madness and gender.

I wrote a book about my Uncle Bob 

called A KIND OF MIRRACULAS PARADISE: A True story about Schizophrenia, which was published by Scribner. 

Here are some FAQs about AKOMP, Uncle Bob and me.

I also host a podcast about our pop culture's messages about mental health, called Mad Chat.

You can do other things at this website like...

Check out my features, essays, and radio stories.

Peruse recommended books, podcasts and organizations at my my mental health-focused resources page.

Sign up for my extremely occasional newsletter.

Get in touch.
