Leah Thomas once wrote from a house in the woods, and now an apartment more or less by the sea (well, less). Her debut novel BECAUSE YOU'LL NEVER MEET ME was a 2016 Morris Award finalist, and its sequel, NOWHERE NEAR YOU, is out now from Bloomsbury. Her third YA science fiction novel, WHEN LIGHT LEFT US, hit shelves this February.

A graduate of Clarion 2010, her short fiction has appeared in Asimov’s, Black Static, Ideomancer, and Three-Lobed Burning Eye, among others. She's mostly a dork and always feels uncomfortable about author bios. If she's not writing, she's likely teaching or cosplaying. Follow her on instagram (@fellowhermit), or on tumblr (cuttoothom).

Touring for Nowhere Near You!

Nowhere Near You, the sequel to Because You'll Never Meet Me hits shelves in just two weeks, which means I need to pull my head out of the sand and holler loudly about it for anyone interested!

I'll be doing a brief tour with fellow Bloomsbury author Len Vlahos along the west coast in early February, and aside from having no idea how to pack for the infamous rains of Seattle now that I'm a Californ Read more of this blog post »

“Please follow these instructions:
1. Stack the pages of this letter neatly.
2. Roll the pages up into a cylinder.
3. Smack yourself over the head with it.
4. Repeat. You complete ass.”
Leah Thomas, Because You'll Never Meet Me

“Maybe the reason people avoid you is because the emotions your brain sends out when you click are kind of... negative emotions?

Maybe you're clicking unhappiness at people, and they're sending it back in echoes.”
Leah Thomas, Because You'll Never Meet Me

“Maybe we're on the wrong side of some metaphorical bridge where the grass is crusty and not grass at all, but sharp little spines of glass. I dunno, Moritz.
But the one little speck of green that I get is your letters, so please never stop writing me.
You got that?
Never stop.

Because you'll never meet me and it's the closest we can get.”
Leah Thomas, Because You'll Never Meet Me
