About the Author

J.T. Allen is a long-time screenwriter who sold his first script while living in Paris.  He then moved to Los Angeles and wrote several early drafts of The Lion King.

The first Daisy Tannenbaum misadventure, Daisy and the Pirates, started as a pitch for a Disney Channel movie.  Allen loved the character, who was inspired by his two daughters, and wrote a novel instead. 

Daisy in Exile, the second in the series, started as Daisy's blog, My Stupid Journal.  In the meantime, this very instant, Daisy has a crack troop of monkeys working day and night to create a third book while she is off getting into mischief, which she (or Mr. Allen) will no doubt tell the monkeys all about.
