Leen Lefebre

Biography

Leen Lefebre grew up in West Flanders where she works at the Local Heritage Service. As a kid, she threw herself upon each book that was available. Later, she turned around and settled on the worldwide web. She then emerged as a true explorer of literature, music, and sports. Leen is a dreamer and a doer – and this is how her stories rose up as charming and lively fairy tales for adventurers of all ages.

Leen Lefebre groeide in Deerlijk op, in West-Vlaanderen, waar ze werkt op de dienst Erfgoed. Ze wierp zich al erg vroeg op elk boek dat voorhanden was. Daarna wentelde en nestelde ze zich in het wereldwijde web. Literair, muzikaal en sportief ontpopte ze zich als een ware ontdekkingsreiziger. Leen is dromer én doener. Zo zijn ook al haar boeken ontstaan: verhalen voor avonturiers – jong en oud.
