Anne LeonardAbout Anne Leonard:

"I was born in Chicago and have lived in 8 different states, eventually ending up in California. I graduated with a BA from St. John's College and went on to get my MFA at the University of Pittsburgh. After this came a Ph.D. in English from Kent State University, and then a dry spell with no school for about six years before I started law school at the University of California, Hastings College of Law. I am a licensed attorney. I wrote the first draft of Moth and Spark while in law school.

When I was in my doc program, I edited what was then the first scholarly collection of essays on race and color in science fiction and fantasy (Into Darkness Peering, Greenwood Press, 1997). I authored the chapter on race in The Cambridge Companion to Science Fiction (Cambridge, 2003). Additional critical work and reviews have appeared in various academic journals.

I have a husband, teen-aged son, and two black cats, Puck and Theo. When I'm not writing or having family time, I take walks and go on photography expeditions, or listen ever-hopefully to Chicago Cubs games on the radio."
