Leanne (pictured left with her husband) grew up in Wisconsin. They lived in South Carolina for several years while her husband was stationed there in the Navy. She and her husband of forty-two years now live in Florida. They have one daughter, one son and daughter-in-law, one grandson, and four granddaughters.

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. On her last trip overseas, she traveled to Norway to do research for an upcoming Viking epic. Before that, 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, and Hawaii 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 her international award winning novel HIGHLAND WISHES, a historical novel about Scotland’s War for Independence. Its sequel, HER HIGHLAND ROGUE, has also won international awards. 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. For those, she traditionally switches to US themes, from World War II to the Great Depression. Her goal is to make people fall in love with history.

She welcomes comments from her readers.
