Author: David Allen

David Allen, a native of Illinois, has worked in newspapers for three decades, all in California, his adopted home. His career began in 1987 at the Santa Rosa News Herald and continued at the Rohnert Park- Cotati Clarion, Petaluma Argus-Courier and Victor Valley Daily Press, some of which are still in business. In 1997 he joined the Inland Valley Daily Bulletin, where he is a columnist writing about people, places, arts, government and other topics, including, as you may have guessed, the Los Angeles County Fair. His columns now appear as well in the San Bernardino Sun and Riverside Press-Enterprise as his reach expands to the entire Inland Empire. Find his work online, or impress your friends by buying an actual newspaper. A resident of Claremont, he is the author of three previous books, POMONA A TO Z, GETTING STARTED, and ON TRACK, also from Pelekinesis.
