About the Author
A.A. Leil (born Amr Abouelleil) is an Egyptian-American author of speculative and contemporary fiction. His work often explores the intersection of East and West, waiting to see what happens when – at the same time – all the lights turn green. He began writing, like most hormonal teenagers do, to impress a girl. The girl wasn’t very impressed, but his high school English teachers were, and awarded him a certificate. He then abandoned writing for the next two decades, succumbing to the notion that one’s life should be devoted to the pursuit of a good, steady job to pay the bills and support a family regardless of whether one loves that job or not.
On A.A. Leil’s blog, you’ll find his author’s notes on short stories, updates on publications and works in progress, and writing advice. He might even jump into a story character from time to time.
