Featured Interview With Allen Filson
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
I was born in Pennsylvania, but have lived in 9 different states, and also three different countries. I have been around the world several times and have visited over 30 different countries. I currently reside in Florida. I have served in the U.S. Marines as a sergeant leading men in combat, I have been a director of technology in the printing industry, the president of a manufacturing company, and am currently the Director of Professional Services for Canon Solutions America.
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
I actually started writing about ten years ago or more, but my first book came out late last year. It was not the first book I had written or even worked on, it was just the first one I published. I have second book pending release and am very excited to see it come out. All of the people who have read my first book and offered their encouragement, and kind reviews of it, have really inspired me to continue writing. I cannot express how much all of your support has meant to me.
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
I read almost exclusively non-fiction. Lots of history, lots of leadership style books. I really like John Maxwell, Simon Sinek, Craig Groeschel, and Adam Grant. I am inspired by people trying to change the world for the better by their books.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
My latest book is called, “Belief-In-Self” and is a book about how anyone can overcome any obstacles they face in life. I try and write in a way as to not just tell a story, but to have a conversation with the reader. I want them to become part of the journey, and feel that they are right there standing next to me as we overcome the events that unfold. All profit of my books go to charity, I am writing them to try and help others, not for profit. If only one person gets something out of what I have written and shared, then every single word I have written has been worth it.
