Bruce Leonard earned a B.A. in English with a creative-writing emphasis from UCLA. He has worked extensively as a writer, editor, and photographer—from ghostwriting dating profiles and selling stand-alone photos to writing travel stories for prestigious magazines and running newsrooms. He had a screenplay he co-wrote optioned twice by Hollywood producers and had four self-published Amazon No. 1 bestsellers. In the years preceding most of those endeavors, he held a multitude of jobs, the most intriguing of which were owning and operating The Blues Bakery in Ventura, California (where he made the world’s best peanut butter cookies), and, as a “volunteer” at the Human Nutrition Research Center in Grand Forks, North Dakota, ingesting copper in the name of science as a guinea pig for the United States Government.
Bruce lives in Southern Illinois with his wife, Sedonia, and their two cats.
