A Canadian grade school teacher for 23 years, Guillermo Leon’s love of teaching and of foreign places brought him to the writing of his first novel, set in San Miguel de Allende, Mexico. “Beyond a great story, I’m always looking for the worthwhile premise of a novel,” he maintains. “What good is a book if it doesn’t at least try to reach for redemption in some way?”
Guillermo loves reading books with a hero’s journey, books that force people to make decisions that inspire a change for the better. As a teacher, he says he is always trying to bring out the best in people; “a novel is a story of life; I’ve used my life, my travels, to bring you a story worth reading, one that someone can say, “wow, look here, there’s more than just a shallow, self-absorbed world, there’s a hope for a better future, a better global community.” An English literature graduate, Leon always enjoys and is always searching for the next great and inspiring novel.
