Nan Corbitt Allen's Bio:

Over the past 25 years, Nan Corbitt Allen has written over 100 published dramatic musicals, sketchbooks, and collections for mainline Christian music publishers. Most of these works were in collaboration with Dennis Allen, her husband of over 35 years. The two started a Christian music and drama self-publishing company called Allenhouse Productions. The web-based company allows for the creation and publication of specialty products for the church and school.

A multiple Dove Award winner, Nanís lyrics and dramas have been performed across the U.S. and around the world. Her first novel Asylum (2004, Moody Press) was the feature fiction selection for Crossings Book Club. Her first non-fiction book The Words We Sing (2010, Beacon Hill Press) is a refreshing look at words and phrases worshippers sing on Sundays but hardly use otherwise.

Nan is a native of Geneva, Alabama, and a graduate of The University of Alabama in Communication. She lives with her husband, Dennis, in the boondocks outside of Nashville, TN. They have two grown sons and perfect grandchildren.
