Let me introduce myself…I’m Leigh. I’m a Maryland author, I’m sixteen-years-old at heart, I’ve had type 1 diabetes since 2001 (#T1DLooksLikeMe), and I’ve always loved to write.
As a teen, I remember craving fantasy books with an enchanted main character; however the character’s real strength wasn’t magic, it was courage, which she’d possessed all along. Doesn’t everyone want to read about heroines like that?
When I’m not writing or re-reading a Jane Austen novel, I’m hangin’ with the ones I love–the hubs, the kids, and a little golden retriever who likes to play hide and seek. Fun fact–I recently learned that I am the eighth great-granddaughter of accused Chesapeake witch, Elizabeth Duncan of Virginia who went to trial in 1695 for bewitching livestock and causing birds to fall from the sky!
Speaking of Chesapeake witches, here’s a blurb for my next 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!
