Anne Leinonen is a writer who lives in the countryside with bats, glow-worms, and her family. She writes speculative stories, in which she is particularly interested in "weirding" the everyday and recycling folklore. She has published numerous books with co-authors as well as works of her own.

She has won the esteemed Atorox award three times and she and co-author Eija Lappalainen have been nominated for the Finlandia Junior and Tähtivaeltaja awards for the novel Routasisarukset [Children of the Frost] (2011).

She has written critically acclaimed science fiction novels, including Viivamaalari [The Line Painter] (2013) and Ilottomien ihmisten kylä [The Village] (2014). Her latest novel, Vaskinainen [The Brass Woman], was published in 2015 and mixes Finnish and international myths. In addition to young adult and adult prose, Leinonen has expanded her work into radio plays and television drama.
