“I love writing YA because the teen years are a time of taking risks, discovering the unknown, and experiencing all those heart-pounding, swoon-worthy firsts.”
Let me introduce myself…I’m Leigh. I’m an author from Annapolis, 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, including a little golden retriever who likes to play hide and seek.
Serious fact–I’m living with type one diabetes and thriving–#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!
