Leanne Crabtree


I’m 23 and live near Sheffield in South Yorkshire. I work as a part-time Events Safety Steward and at Wilko and write in between events.

My stories tend to be short as i havent quite got the hang of describing things in great detail but my stories are improving with each attempt.

I’ve self published my work on Amazon and will be doing the same on Smashwords.

Please note: My books are romance and therefore probably not for everyone.


Smashwords Interview

When did you first start writing?
I started writing when I was about fifteen after being set the task of writing a short "Assassin" story as part of my English Literature GCSE. I'd already been reading for a while by then (Mills & Boon/Harlequin) so I had this brilliant idea to make it a bit saucy--it got me a B grade in the end.
What is your writing process?
I don't really have one. It tends to start with a good scene and then grows from there, sometimes it comes to fruition, other times it falls flat and doesn't go anywhere. I have quite a few stories on the go and maybe not having a writing process/plan is why they aren't getting finished.
