Development Pitch

About The Author

Leigh W. Stuart was born and raised in Kansas City, Missouri, daughter to an English teacher. This may or may not explain her early affinity to reading books. Although she decided to be a writer by the age of six years old, she later talked herself out of it and went on to study French and German in college. She met her husband in Switzerland, where she studied abroad one year, and they now live there with their two children. Love of reading inevitably transformed into a love of writing and she is thrilled to begin a new adventure as an author of romance novels.
