Author's Bio

Jessica Gleason writes because Bukowski no longer can. Gleason has one published novel, "Madison Murphy, Wisconsin Weirdo" and a poetry collection, "Sundown on this Town" which is available from Popcorn Press. If you want to read more of her work, google her. You can find poems, prose and samples of her novel all over the internet, but you have to work for it. She also, occasionally, likes to sleep in a Star Trek uniform and has mastered The Song of Time on her Ocarina. Jessica has a BA in English Writing and an MFA in Creative Writing. She has been a career college instructor since 2008.
