Leigh is a German-born author, graphic artist, and computer fiend who’s been writing for the past 30 years under various names. She is currently busy with the War Singer series and related novellas, which can be classified as Sword and Sorcery with a dash of Epic and a generous sprinkling of romance and relationshipping. A second series, this one Urban Fantasy, is in the planning stages. Leigh’s fiction usually comes with a fantastic element and is heavily character-driven.

When she isn’t reading or writing, Leigh is mostly busy with graphic design, reading/researching, drawing, and herding bunnies (both fictional and real).

Service rates may vary and usually depend on your specific needs. In regards to editing services, fees for experienced authors are usually lower than beginner rates, since in most cases less work on the editor’s side is required. Usually a trial chapter at a fixed entry price shows if editor and author are a good fit. For further information please send an inquiry via the contact form.
