Leona Deakin is an author and chartered occupational psychologist. She lives on the outskirts of Leeds with her husband and a scruffy long dog called Sedgeley. Leona began writing stories as presents for her younger sisters. Then in 2010, whilst reading about the latest advances in psychological research, she found her self pondering the question, if psychological understanding continued to progress along current lines, what kind of future would it present? And if one of us was faced with that, what magic and mayhem might we find? And so was born her debut novel, Anomaly.
