Leisl Leighton is a tall red head with an overly large imagination. As a child, she identified strongly with Anne of Green Gables, and like Anne, is a voracious reader and born performer. It came as no surprise when she went on to a career as a performer, script writer, script doctor, stage manager and musical director for cabaret and theatre restaurants.

After starting a family, Leisl stopped performing and began writing the stories plaguing her dreams. She is addicted to sci-fi and romance books and DVDs, she sometimes sings in a choir, loves to ski and horse ride, and was President of Romance Writers of Australia from 2014–2017. When she’s not writing, she helps other writers make their manuscripts shine.

I think it partially comes about because writers expect for perfection to flow out and onto the page, where the reality is it's more like word vomit in the first draft. I don't expect perfection when I write and I don't sit for long periods trying to find the right word or phrase to express what I want. If I can't find it quickly, I highlight and move on. Editing is where getting it right needs to happen, and given my brain is working differently when editing, it's more likely I will find what I need to make it work - and if I don't, that's where a good editor and Beta readers come in to help you get it right.

Leisl Leighton Diving into the worlds I create and becoming friends with the characters and falling in love with them. It makes my heart sing.
