Allen Kitchen is the author of two published books, I Want To Be a Sprinkler and The True Story of the Gingerbread Man. Many more books are in the works. Allen grew up in Norfolk, Ontario Canada. After spending two decades in Japan, he has returned to Canada and currently resides in Simcoe, Ontario with his family. Nearly all his tales originated as bedtime stories he told to his son. His books cover a wide range of themes, and it is hoped that the stories will inspire children to read more, write more, and dream more.
