Born and raised in California, Leigh Vining has been creating stories in her head for as long as she can remember. Always drawn to male friendships, she believes that loving who you love should never be something to be ashamed of.
She and her husband are stray cat magnets and they share their home with a houseful of rescues. Leigh believes that cats are great companions for people who sit at their desks for long periods of time. A lap full of purring cat has kept her company many a night while agonizing over every typed word.
Her muse often goes into overdrive while working out at the gym. She finds that breaking up the day with physical activity is good for your muscles, including the creative ones.
Her favorite ways to relax are baking sweet desserts, taking long walks, and watching baseball on TV.
