More About the Author
Leanne grew up in Wisconsin. She and her husband lived in South Carolina for several years while he was stationed there in the Navy. She and her husband of almost forty-one years now live in Florida. They have one daughter, one son and daughter-in-law, one grandson, three granddaughters and a new grandchild on the way. God and her family are the most important things in her life.
Having worked at three newspapers within the state of Florida, she loved the entire creative process. Her forte was editing.
She enjoys reading, writing, and traveling. She traveled to Norway to do research for an upcoming Viking epic. The year before, she traveled to Ireland, where she fell in love with the beautiful countryside and its Viking history. She's also traveled to England, Spain, France, Hawaii and Mexico (the Mayans)in search of stories waiting to be told! Her absolute favorite place to visit, however, is the lovely country of Scotland. Its beauty is beyond words, and the friendliness of its people is incomparable. In Florida, she can often be found at Disney World with her grandchildren (although everyone knows they are merely an excuse for her to visit).
While doing genealogy research for her husband, she fell in love with Scottish history. That led to the novel HIGHLAND WISHES, a historical novel about Scotland's War for Independence. Its sequel, HER HIGHLAND ROGUE, was then released. She currently has several other novels in progress. KEEPER OF MY HEART, a novel about the Battle of Culloden and its aftermath is her current work in progress. THE POWER AND THE PASSION is the Viking epic. The third story in the Scottish War for Independence trilogy is also being worked on. In addition, Leanne has participated in several anthologies. The first, NO LAW AGAINST LOVE, is a romantic anthology of silly laws still on the books around the world. Proceeds from this anthology are being donated to breast cancer research and treatment. All her books can be viewed at her website.
She is currently a member of the National PEN Women in Letters, Romance Writers of America, Outreach International, Celtic Hearts Romance Writers, Hearts Through History Romance Writers, First Coast Romance Writers, Central Florida Romance Writers, Florida Writers of America, Historical Writers Association and The Mystic Castle.
