Alexandra Allred and Capt. Marshall AllenAn Interview with author Alexandra Allred about her book, "Swingman." A simple bike ride changed their lives! If you believe in miracles, if you believe you can fight city hall, if you believe in overcoming insurmountable obstacles, this is the book for you! Prepare to be inspired by the indomitable spirit of both Captain Marshall Allen and his friend Alexandra Allred. Former member of the US women’s bobsled team, named “Athlete of the Year” by the United States Olympic Committee; first female champion in the United States. Following a story with Sports Illustrated in which I played professional women’s football (all for a story!), I became an adventure writer for a number of publications and books, test driving the Volvo Gravity Car and performing stunts no one else wanted to do. A former editor of a community magazine and full time freelancer, nothing could have prepared me for meeting Capt. Marshall Allen. He’s been my greatest adventure of all. Married with three children, two dogs, two cats and two horses outside Dallas, Texas. All content provided for promotional purposes by the author, for the author interview.
