Have you read all those author's biographies listing all their strange pursuits? Well Leigh Cross is no different. Excepting the priesthood he followed most of the occupations he's written about: Korean War Veteran pilot sailor logger horse-farmer machinist cellist music historian-is that enough? He hopes so. Leigh was born an American but he got over it. He currently lives in Vancouver and when he's not writing he builds Art Nouveau furniture and is developing an electric tricycle.

Holy cow! Is he still here? Call for the men in the white coats with the big white laundry bag!
