Biography

Alison Leonard's life as a writer ranges over a wide area: starting with fiction for young adults and children she then wrote plays for BBC radio and for community theatre. Her work has always had spiritual and political resonances, and her specifically spiritual works look at life through meditative eyes, merging Quaker mysticism with pagan earth-centredness. Now her passion is for fiction that turns its own particular world upside-down: in Flesh & Bronze, the book she completed during her studies at the Manchester Writing School, she looks at great art from the point of view of the model and the artisan, and in her Heavenly Lilies trilogy (in preparation) she explores the politics and passions of three women during the last three turbulent decades of British history.
