Welcome to the web
home of Allie McCormack. I'm a romance writer, and bringing my
characters and their stories to life is my pleasure and
privilege. I have one published (paperback and Kindle) novel,
Truck Stop, as well as four finished manuscripts I'll be trying to find a
home for with a traditional publisher.
My first romance novel, Truck Stop, is available now on Amazon.com as paperback and Kindle eBook. The manuscript won the Undiscovered Writer II Contest in 2000, and went on to be published originally with SynergEbooks in 2001, and received a four-star review from Romantic Times magazine, as well as great reviews/ratings from a number of romance review sites!
Teri Campbell is on the run, on a bus ride to nowhere. An unscheduled stop on the wind-blown plains of Wyoming leaves her at M&J's Truck Stop... and in the arms of Mike Gallagher, the young trucker who appoints himself her protector, who understands her as no one else could. But will her new life and her new-found love be enough when events take an unexpected turn? ... and can even Mike keep her safe from the past that threatens to reclaim her?
You can also purchase an
autographed paperback copy of Truck Stop directly from me via
PayPal (yes, you can use your own credit card if you don't have
a PayPal account!). Use the Buy Now button below, then email me
with the name you wish used for the inscription.

I'm going to be
launching my first monthly author's newsletter,
here to read the blog post I wrote up on it.
But wait! There's more!
I'm really going to have fun with this, and I want to make it fun for my readers. I thought I'd share some of my experiences in my struggle to become a "real" writer(TM) and the rocky road to publishing, maybe some excerpts from my works in progress, as well as provide links to fun and/or helpful and/or educational articles, blogs, vlogs and videos. We'll have occasional guest appearances by my Norwegian Forest cat, Gunnar, and I'm also going to have a Recipe of the Month, starring some of my family's old tried-and-true recipes.
