Lou Allin grew up in Cleveland, Ohio, where her film-booker father relocated. She received a PhD in English Renaissance Literature for her study of the murdered spy, Christoper Marlowe. With jobs scarce in the US, she returned to Canada, finding herself 250 miles north of Toronto in Sudbury, the Nickel Capital. Cambrian College employed her as a professor of English, where she taught very boring but occasionally useful courses to students of business and criminal justice.

With a cottage on a meteor-crater lake of sixty-four square miles as her inspiration, she began her Belle Palmer series, featuring a realtor and her German shepherd, Freya: Northern Winters Are MurderBlackflies Are MurderBush Poodles Are MurderMurder, Eh? and Memories Are Murder.
