Hello! I'm Sandy Allen.

I'm an author, journalist and speaker.


My work tends to focus on gender and mental health. 

Here's more about me.

My first book is called A Kind of Mirraculas Paradise.  

AKOMP tells story of the life of my Uncle Bob. 


It's also a reckoning to do with how we treat those deemed abnormal by psychiatry and society. 

Here's more about AKOMP.

Here are some FAQs about Uncle Bob and the book and me.
