Howard Levine is the author of one previously published novel, Leaving This Life
Behind. He is a retired teacher of special education and English as a second language. Before his first public school teaching position—at a high school in the Bronx, NY—he taught Transcendental Meditation, which he still practices regularly. Howard now lives in suburban Washington DC, where he hikes, bikes, and writes. He and his wife volunteer at a soup kitchen and a senior citizens center.
