Leona Wisoker started out as a writer when she was eight, with a story about all the vacuum cleaners in the world breaking down at the same time. Her parents made the deadly mistake of praising it, and friends and family alike have had to wade through piles of her work ever since.
Her first novel, Secrets of the Sands, was published March 2010 though Mercury Retrograde Press; the sequel, Guardians of the Desert, came out March 2011. She has returned to writing for Green Man Review after an absence of four years, during which she trained as a massage therapist and energy healer. On discovering that the satisfaction of healing others, high as it was, still took second place to the written word for her, she bowed humbly to the various Muses hitting her over the head and returned to her desk. She also edits for the Sleeping Hedgehog and Damnation Books.
Her short fiction can be found at Anotherealm.com, and has also been published in Andromeda Spaceways Inflight Magazine, “Futures: Fire to Fly Magazine” and at Alienskin.com.
Leona currently lives in Williamsburg, Virginia, with an extraordinarily patient husband and two large dogs, all of whom do their best to drag her into physical activity once in a while. They usually fail.
She almost never vacuums.
