About Dirk Q. Allen

“I love to write,’” said award-winning writer Dirk Q. Allen when asked about his new book, “Notes for a Book.”

“In the back of our minds, those of us who love to write always think about the Great American Novel,’’ added Allen, a graduate of Brown University in Providence, R.I., who spent more than two decades in the newspaper business. “I don’t have the Great American Novel. What I have are ideas, thoughts, nuggets … notes … notes that I have pulled together for this particular project.”

“Writing gets in your blood,” said Allen, who has been writing ever since he can remember. “It’s very rewarding to put pen to paper or keyboard to computer screen, and create. We feel like we’re accomplishing something.”
