Welcome! This Girl Connie is a site for the writings, ramblings, and creative content of Connie Allen.
Currently residing in sunny San Diego, home to Comic-Con International, and some of the best street tacos in southern California. Connie is an avid reader with a love for books, true crime, the paranormal, and animals. Connie spent several years between 2010-2017 as a critic writing tv and film reviews for various online outlets such as Your Entertainment Corner (YEC) as well as conducting interviews as a member of the press for Collider (“Vikings”), YEC (“American Gods, “The Vampire Diaries,” and “Black Sails”), and Pop Sugar (“Glee”). Between juggling story deadlines and a desk job, Connie decided she needed to take a step back and return to her first love: creative writing. Connie’s ultimate goal is to publish her own original stories, and for one day see those same stories adapted for television.
In the meantime, whenever Connie isn’t researching Filipino folklore, and dead languages, she’s watching her favorite tv shows like “Shadow and Bone,” or re-runs of “Dead Like Me.” She is wholeheartedly supporting her fellow creative authors, songmakers, artists, and fangirls/fanboys in the world of geekdom.
