Reba Leiding

Reba grew up on a family farm in downstate Illinois, back before they disappeared for the most part. After wandering in the employment wilderness for several years, she became an academic librarian, ending up at a university in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley. A few years ago she retired to Traverse City, Michigan, both because it’s beautiful and because it isn’t rife with chiggers and snakes. She began writing in earnest while still a librarian, as a way of reminiscing about life before the Internet, and continued into her retirement, during which she assumed, wrongly, that she would have more time.
