Leah Ness


Leah is a self-professed story addict. Ever since she was little, she’s had an overactive imagination and a passion for a well-spun yarn. When she grew up, she was blessed with a passion for God as well. It was then that she noticed a relative shortage of unique Christian fiction, the kind that can both captivate the reader and glorify God. So, despite the hurdles of things like commas and homonyms, she is endeavoring to write some of her own.
She currently lives in Colorado Springs with her amazingly wonderful husband, a short drive away from a pretty insane bunch of siblings.
Ransomed is her first novel.

Smashwords Interview

What motivated you to become an author?
I love stories, I always have. I believe they're an intricate and vital part of communication. Regardless of whether we want to share sorrows or triumphs, laughs or challenges, we communicate those emotions through our stories. Stories are also a form of escape. We readers all know the feeling of running away into the pages of a good book. Writing gives me the opportunity to not only run off into a fantasy, but to explain why I'm glad I did. Nothing measures up to the feeling of developing characters, walking with them through their adventures, and sharing those experiences with other readers.
What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The escape. Closely followed by the joy of knowing my characters. Most writers will tell you that their characters eventually develop minds of their own and go off in directions the author never intended. I love it when my characters develop their own personalities and disobey me. Trying to get them to behave can be like herding cats, and it can be a lot of fun!
