About the Author
A resident of Alberta, Canada, Sheryl Leonard is a registered nurse who always aspired to be a published writer. The Real McCoy, her second book, is based on a short piece she wrote years ago and was inspired by the stories, patients, and hospital settings she has encountered during her career. Leonard’s first romance novel, Out of the Shadows, was published in 2010. Still active in the nursing field, Leonard is also an avid gardener. When the long, frigid Alberta winters hit and gardening takes a backseat, she spends her time knitting, baking, and huddling indoors with a cup of tea and a good book.
