About the Author

Sharon Leder taught English, women's studies, and Jewish studies on several campuses of the State University of New York and is Associate Professor Emerita at S.U.N.Y.-Nassau Community College. As a teacher, she wrote books and articles on women writers, on the literature of the Holocaust, and on women in academia before beginning the second half of her life as a fiction writer and poet. An earlier draft of her novel The Fix was a finalist in Merrimack Media's Outstanding Writer Award (2015). Several of Leder’s short works of fiction have been anthologized or published online. In her fiction, Leder uses her life story as the oldest daughter of a heroin addict to help her imagine ways for her characters to survive conflict, tragedy, and trauma without losing sight of the supports they need to prevail. As an adult in the ongoing process of recovery, she has been helped by twelve-step programs, nonprofit groups that stress self-help in the context of loving community. Leder resides on Cape Cod with her husband, artist and author Milton Teichman. Together they run The Teichman Art Gallery. Visit Leder at
