Kay Leitch


I worked in journalism for over twenty years, including four as production editor of Cosmopolitan Magazine and eleven as production editor of The Sunday Times Magazine. I wrote some features, travel writing and interviews. My love of journalism (I mean good journalism, not the celeb-driven drivel we see too much of these days) merged seamlessly into a love of books, so it was natural for me to dip my toe into the publishing pond when I left journalism for a quieter life.

But my life didn't get quieter — I took an MA in Writing for Young People at Bath Spa University and started writing books (and finishing them — that's the important part :) ). I read for a children's publisher, found out a little about the industry, started a company offering manuscript assessment, copyediting and proofreading, and then got involved in independent publishing with Electrik Inc, a small collective of very talented writers and editors.

So here I am. Treasure This is my first children's novel: a whodunit for all ages over 10. I hope you like it.
