Jane Leder is the award-winning author of Dead Serious (1st edition), named a YASD Best Book for Young Adults.  Her 2nd edition of Dead Serious reached Number 1 on Amazon’s “Books for teens and young adults about suicide.”  In 2019, Leder was honored as a guest author at the 2019 Carl Sandburg Literary Awards.

Born in Detroit, Michigan, the “Motor City” and original home of Motown, Leder is a baby boomer (in truth, she was born five months before) who came of age in the sixties. She is fascinated by the complexities of relationships between generations, between genders, and between our personal and public personas.

The Sibling Connection explores relationships between siblings from childhood through old age. Thanks For The Memories Love, Sex and World War II recounts how men and women during World War II sought love, sex, and security in the midst of the upheavals of wartime. And Dead Serious explores what teens and adults can do to help break the cycle of teen suicide.

Leder currently spends her time in Evanston, Illinois, and San Miguel de Allende, Mexico.
