Loreley Leonard


Loreley Leonard Pelino has practiced as a psychotherapist who also has a boutique coaching service. In her early career, Loreley worked as a primary psychotherapist in an outpatient community-based mental health organization, specializing in PTSD. While in this role, she led many women’s groups including a recovery group called “Women Helping Women”. It was this experience that served as the catalyst to what would become one of Loreley’s true calling: helping empower women to respect, embrace, and celebrate the awesome power of their “femininity” as a blessing and not something to “overcome”.

She dabbles in make-up and skin care and continues to find being with other women to be a source of renewal.

Loreley Leonard Pelino lives in Norman, OK with her Fiance and their two fur babies.

Smashwords Interview

Where did you grow up, and how did this influence your writing?
Dad was a soldier, which meant I grew up in an Army family. We moved often. This early experience taught me that home is with your family and it isn't tied to geography. My sisters and I also learned to make friends quickly. As an adult this translated into my love of public speaking and extroverted personality.
What motivated you to become an indie author?
I embraced the freedom it has allowed me over my creative content. I want to talk to my readers in a voice that is me and isn't diluted by editorial reviewes.
