William Leisner began his professional writing career with three winning stories in the late, lamented Star Trek: Strange New Worlds competition. He has since written numerous other Star Trek short stories, novellas and novels, including the Original Series novel, The Shocks of Adversity and the TNG novel, Losing the Peace. He has also contributed stories to all three of the ReDeus shared-world anthologies by Crazy 8 Press, and his original fiction has appeared in Lissette's Tales of Imagination and in the forthcoming anthology A Quiet Shelter There. He is currently at work on a historical fantasy novel set in the American West, and a few other ideas. A native of Rochester, New York, he currently lives in Minneapolis.
