Let me introduce myself…I’m Leigh. I’m a young adult author, I’m sixteen-years-old at heart, and I’ve been imagining and writing stories since I can remember.
As a kid, I craved books with enchanted main characters; however their real strength wasn’t magic, it was courage, which they’d possessed all along. Doesn’t everyone want to read about heroes/heroines like that?
When I’m not writing or keeping up with book club novels, I’m hangin’ with the ones I love–the hubs, the kids, and a little golden retriever who likes to play hide and seek.
Serious fact–I’m living and thriving with type one diabetes–#T1DLooksLikeMe.
Fun fact–I recently learned that I am the eighth great-granddaughter of accused witch Elizabeth Duncan of Virginia who went to trial in 1695 for bewitching livestock and causing birds to fall from the sky–I totally love that!
Speaking of Chesapeake witches, here’s a blurb about my second enchanting ever-after, BEWITCHING HANNAH…
When an ancient prophecy reveals the rise of a young, powerful witch and the impending death of another, sixteen-year-old Hannah Fitzgerald realizes she can no longer afford to suppress the magic that has taken away so much. She seeks out the frighteningly scarred, yet mysterious W who is destined to change her life, but even he cannot prepare her for the danger that surrounds her in the historic town of Annapolis.
My debut novel, DISENCHANTED, a fantasy inspired by the Wethersfield witches of seventeenth century Connecticut (you’ve got to check out these babes) is now available at Amazon, BN.com, IndieBound, and can be found on the shelves at select Barnes & Noble stores.
I’m still writing, hope you’re still reading!
