About the author


Leah Glennon

Leah Glennon earned a BA in Philosophy from Clark University and an MFA in Creative Writing from Lesley University. She has written professionally for over 30 years, in vastly different settings, including as a journalist in Mexico City; in documentary film production for PBS in Denver and New York City; and in content writing and advertising for progressive, elementary education. During that time Leah also honed her skills as a memoirist, working most recently in the short form. Leah gets tremendous satisfaction from collaborating with other writers as well, helping them get to the center of their stories via thoughtful content and developmental editing. Leah was born and raised in New York City, an experience she most often draws upon for her own work, and now lives in New York’s Hudson Valley with her husband, and two grown sons.
