Black and white photo of Allie Therin.

Allie Therin is the Cuban-American author of the Magic in Manhattan series, LGBT urban fantasy romances set in the 1920s. Her books have received starred reviews, hit Amazon and Kobo bestseller lists, topped reader-favorite polls and featured on sites like Bookriot, Lamda Literary, and The Nerd Daily. A writer and avid reader of sci-fi, fantasy, and romance, she also is, or has been, a bookseller, an attorney, a Parks & Rec assistant, a boom operator, and a barista for one (embarrassing) day. Allie grew up in a tiny Pacific Northwest town with more bears than people, although the bears sadly would not practice Spanish with her.

When not researching odd questions for her 1920s romance series, she loves to connect with other readers and writers – come say hi on Twitter, Instagram, or drop her a note!
