Leeza grew up with a fascination for notebooks and writing utensils. She began reading and writing at age four, mostly self-taught due to her independent and determined personality. She has had a love of books and reading her entire life. And from her love of reading has grown a love of writing. She enjoys writing stories that embrace the human psyche and relate the joys and struggles that we each face, and how we live through those moments. She writes in the genres of romance, mystery, suspense, thriller, historical fiction, poetry, and children’s.
When not writing, she enjoys drawing and painting; spending time with her family; listening to music; volunteering with her local fire department as a firefighter and EMT-Advanced; and playing the piano and guitar. She lives with her son, two cats, and chihuahua in the Smoky Mountains of Tennessee.
