My name is Leah and I am a writer based in San Diego, California. My role as a mother to two young children has taught me many things but the most important is that I can’t be my best version of a mother if I don’t give myself time to develop my own passions. What kind of role model would I be if I didn’t demonstrate the importance of following ones dreams? So, this website is dedicated to following my dreams. I focus on writing speculative fiction but I also dabble in other forms of prose, everything from environmental essays to parenting preschoolers. You will find them all on my blog.
Before I became a stay-at-home mom (something I am realizing I am definitely not cut out for!), I managed a farmers market produce recovery program for a large LA-based non-profit and, before that, practiced environmental planning in Southern California.
This website is my creative outlet. It’s where I get to escape to other worlds and imagine who lives there. I also dive into environmental and social issues and muse about what’s happening in the world, especially on how it pertains to raising well-rounded, creative kids.
If you don’t see many new posts, it’s likely because I’ve been devoting more time to finishing the first draft of my fantasy novel. One day, one day.
I am also available to write for you or your business as a freelance writer. Please reach out for more information.
