But I can say the main character will be a nurse...and it's not Hot Justin from A STORIED LIFE. Although I would like to give him his own story someday, this next novel will be a standalone.

I'm excited to interview a bunch of my friends who are nurses and delve deep into what their work is like, the highs and lows and how this spills into their personal lives. (less)

Because A STORIED LIFE is self-published, it really depends on reviews and word of mouth recommendations. Without the backing of a publisher, it's not likely to be sold in a bookstore or available at a library unless someone requests it.

Which is why I am over the moon whenever someone tells me they requested A STORIED LIFE at their library!

Leigh’s Recent Updates

Leigh Kramer is on page 123 of 291 of The Silence of the Girls: “It would have been easier, in many ways, to slip into thinking we were all in this together, equally imprisoned on this narrow strip of land between the sand dunes and the sea; easier, but false. They were men, and free, I was a woman, and a slave. And that’s a chasm no amount of sentimental chit-chat about shared imprisonment should be allowed to obscure.”
The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker

Sarah is on page 102 of 336 of The Library Book: “Destroying a library is a kind of terrorize. People think of libraries as the safest and most open places in society. Setting them in fire is like announcing that nothing, and nowhere, is safe.”

“I will not die an unlived life.
I will not live in fear
of falling or catching fire.
I choose to inhabit my days,
to allow my living to open me,
to make me less afraid,
more accessible;
to loosen my heart
until it becomes a wing,
a torch, a promise.
I choose to risk my significance,
to live so that which came to me as seed
goes to the next as blossom,
and that which came to me as blossom,
goes on as fruit.”
Dawna Markova, I Will Not Die an Unlived Life: Reclaiming Purpose and Passion

Tahereh Mafi
“I spent my life folded between the pages of books.
In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

Tahereh Mafi
“Hope is hugging me, holding me in its arms, wiping away my tears and telling me that today and tomorrow and two days from now I will be just fine and I'm so delirious I actually dare to believe it.”
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

Tahereh Mafi
“I always wonder about raindrops.

I wonder about how they're always falling down, tripping over their own feet, breaking their legs and forgetting their parachutes as they tumble right out of the sky toward an uncertain end. It's like someone is emptying their pockets over the earth and doesn't seem to care where the contents fall, doesn't seem to care that the raindrops burst when they hit the ground, that they shatter when they fall to the floor, that people curse the days the drops dare to tap on their doors.

I am a raindrop.

My parents emptied their pockets of me and left me to evaporate on a concrete slab.
Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

“Hope is a pocket of possibility.
I'm holding it in my hand.”
