Hi my name is Leanne Herrera. I am 42 yr old mother of 3 daughters and a grandmother to 1 grand daughter. I fell in love with books and writing when I found my mom's old romance novels. My father was in the military and stationed in Germany. We did not have cable of anything yet so I was pretty bored. I loved reading her books though and found that being someone new everyday was pretty cool.

In highschool I loved poetry, I still enjoyed reading but writing short stories and poetry really made me happy. This is when I started writing. I wrote for my friends and I wrote for myself.

I got married and had kids and writing and everything else sort of sat back on a shelf in my life. When I was in my early 30's and my kids were all in school, I decided to go back to college. I graduated in 2010 with my BFA, unfortunately a semester before graduation, I became ill and had to have emergency surgery. I found myself unable to go back for my teaching degree and have remained homebound since.

This leads me of course to now. With my girls being grown and getting ready to leave the nest and my youngest being to cool to hang out with mom, I found the love of stories again. I read a lot and had ideas of my own. So I took my writing off the shelf and have begun writing.

I was worried that when I finished the first book that I would never be published because I could not afford the editing costs. Now I have two books and a publisher has agreed to publish them for me... yay!!!!!

I am very excited and I have several more stories in the works and I cannot wait to share with the world all the adventures in my head.
