Meet Leigh


Like so many writers and readers, I grew up with my nose in a book. I lived in a small Ohio town where I could walk or bike to the library, and I practically lived there. I read whatever I could get my hands on—fiction and some non-fiction, especially biographies of famous historical figures.

And I’d already begun writing stories. In study hall at school, my pre-teen serial, written in longhand, was quite popular with classmates who devoured each day’s output. A lesson in learning to write fast! After college, I had some short stories published before I wrote my first novel, a glitz-and-glamour book called HEARTSONG, then romance, romantic suspense, and women’s fiction, and many books later I still can’t imagine a better career.

I’m currently a member of Novelists, Inc., the Authors Guild, and am a former member of Romance Writers of America.

When I’m not writing or thinking about writing, I love to spend time with family, play the piano (with gusto if not finesse), watch movies that make me laugh and cry, read, read, read as always, and travel (for research purposes!). At home in the Southwest now, I’m working, of course, on a new novel.
