About Kirsten Allen
I am publisher and editorial director at Torrey House Press, where we publish fiction and nonfiction books that bring to the page voices for the land. Our mission is to promote conservation through literature, to publish books that have a positive impact on conservation. I have a master’s in public health and previously worked at the Utah Department of Health in maternal and child health. In my previous lives, I taught piano, taught English composition at a computer science college, and raised two kids. Today, I live with my husband, Mark Bailey, in Salt Lake City and Torrey, Utah. I blog about wild lands, medicine and pseudo-medicine, and books and publishing.
