Leah resides near the majestic Canadian Rockies with her husband, three children and five pets. With a teacher for a mother and a writer for a father, she had two choices: succeed or die trying. She began writing at an early age and continued to do so into adulthood. By day she manipulates geophysical data, but at night she dives head first into the different places created inside her mind because a lot of interesting people live there. Her family is her first passion, followed closely by a love of both writing and photography. Her YA debut novel Amaranthine will be released in November of 2010.
