Leo W Banks

Teresa Banks

Leo W. Banks worked in high school loading delivery trucks with the Sunday edition of the Boston Globe. In those days the Sunday papers were really heavy, so he switched from lifting to writing. He graduated from Boston College and earned a master's degree from the University of Arizona, where he later taught writing. His articles have appeared in the USA Today, Newsday, Miami Herald, National Review, National Geographic Traveler, Sports Illustrated, Wall Street Journal and many others. He has been a correspondent for the Los Angeles Times and, yes, the Boston Globe.

He has written four books of old west history for Arizona Highways publishing and co-wrote a book about the Grand Canyon. His book about the saguaro cactus won’t stop selling. He has won 38 statewide, regional and national journalism awards, and today writes a column for True West magazine. "Double Wide" is his first novel.
