For Leonardo Wild, writing is about understanding the world better, about immersing readers into reality rather than escaping from it. Leonardo is a professional author with 11 books and 200 published articles as well as 50 produced scripts, from TV spots to institutional videos for various production companies, as well as written and directed feature-length documentaries, one of them the award-winning (LA’s 2010 “Merit Award for Awareness”) Yasuni Two Seconds of Life, and before that, Pesta, Experiences Of An Open School.

Leonardo has given numerous workshops on writing at various universities as well as writers’ conferences, including CraftFest and ThrillerFest, in New York. He is an International Thriller Writers (ITW) member since 2008.

Writing has been Leonardo’s livelihood and passion since age twelve throughout his varied career – sailed across the Atlantic and the Pacific including surviving the Category 4 Cyclone Harry in 1989, walking over the Andes (three times) into the Amazon jungle with Native Indians, took part in gold survey expeditions in Ecuador’s rain forests, cycled across South America, built wooden houses, and advised Ecuador’s Central Bank on currency design.

Leonardo is a Subud member living in Ecuador.
