Allan’s Debut Novel,
The Mystic In The Mews,
Is Available Now

A Mind-Bending Tale of Miraculous Possibilities In The Mystic In The Mews, an avatar returns to this time and place, post-pandemic, to finish what he started 2600 years before. What he shares with the book’s two young protagonists—that everything they thought they knew was mistaken, and the truth is 180º from all that they’ve ever believed—changes their lives unalterably and forever.

Travel with them as they confront their deepest fears, meet allies they never knew existed, and have experiences that defy all rational explanation, while on an urgent mission to shift the thinking of a world at the brink of self-destruction into a place of powerful and predictable miracles. All before it’s too late.

“A captivating adventure story filled with pearls of wisdom.”
– Carol Howe, best-selling author of Never Forget To Laugh

“Allan knows how to pull the reader in… you’ll want to go along with him on this metaphysical and mystical journey of adventure and awakening.”
— Jon Mundy, Ph.D., author of Missouri Mystic and publisher of Miracles Magazine
