David G Allen
David G. Allen has been writing for a number of years, and is a storyteller and professional public speaker. Often to be found trawling through the National Archives, Davidâ€™s writing often has a distinctly historical flavour, combining his love of history with a sense of the macabre and the downright bizarre. A prize winning short story writer, his collection of short stories â€˜Be Sure Your Sinsâ€™ has recently been published by NotsoNoble books.
An experienced and popular public speaker, David has been giving his entertaining talks for a number of years speaking on a variety of subjects ranging from Victorian etiquette to the history of classic movies such as â€˜Casablanca.â€™ His talks are always meticulously researched yet at the same time creative, fun and spontaneous.
A performer at heart, David has appeared in a variety of shows for children and adults, including his one man storytelling shows on factual Victorian Murders. With other theatre companies, David has employed his gift for improvisation in various plays, with a particular focus on immersive theatre, such as the award nominated Jack the Ripperâ€™s London and Follow the Rabbit.
David has also led storytelling and character workshops in Primary schools in and around London, in addition to being a school 'writer in residence', resulting in public performances.
