Leigh Statham was raised in the wilds of rural Idaho, but found her heart in New York City. She worked as a waitress, maid, artist, math teacher, nurse, web designer, art director, thirty-foot inflatable pig and mule wrangler before she settled down in the semi-quiet role of wife, mother and writer. She resides in North Carolina with her husband, four children, five chickens and two suspected serial killer cats.

Leigh is also a founder of QuantumFairyTales.com and is currently serving a life sentence there as senior editor and gnome driver. She loves all things sparkly and strange that go bump in the night.

Original cover with artwork by Phoebe Randall Currently still living on Wattpad


If you’ve followed my career for the last decade or so, you’ll know that Daughter4254 was one of my first novels. I have come back to the world, the characters, and the writing over and over again through the years. When it didn’t initially sell (2010-ish?) I decided to turn it loose on Wattpad.

Completely steeped in the misogyny of the time, this book was at times infuriating and often ridiculous. Why did I keep reading it and why give it any stars at all? For a couple of reasons.

“What really knocks me out is a book that, when you're all done reading it, you wish the author that wrote it was a terrific friend of yours and you could call him up on the phone whenever you felt like it. That doesn't happen much, though.”
