Leisl Leighton


Award winning author, 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 to anyone when she did a double major in English Literature and Drama for her BA, then went on to a career as an actor, singer and dancer, as well as script writer, script doctor, stage manager and musical director for cabaret and theatre restaurants (one of which she co-owned and ran for six years).

After starting a family, Leisl stopped performing and instead, began writing the stories that had been plaguing her dreams. Leisl lives in the leafy suburbs of Melbourne with her two beautiful boys, lovely hubby, overly spunky dogs and her son’s dog-like cat. She is addicted to the Syfy channel and her shelves are full of fantasy, paranormal, Sci-fi and romance books and Blue-Rays. She sometimes sings in a choir, has worked as a swim teacher, loves to ski and horse ride, can talk the hind leg off a donkey and has been President of Romance Writers of Australia from 2014-2017.

Leisl is the author of the paranormal romance Pack Bound Series (Pack Bound, Moon Bound, Shifter Bound and Wolf Bound – out now), and romantic suspense novels, Dangerous Echoes (Book 1 in the Echo Springs Series – out now), Climbing Fear (Book 1 in the CoalCliff Stud Series – due out 12/6/19) and Blazing Fear (Book 2 in the CoalCliff Stud Series – due on early 2020)

  1. Congrats Leisl, beautifully designed by your hubby! Love the butterfly superimposed on angel wings – very cool.

    1. Hi Frana. Whilst I would love to take credit for the artwork, Leisl actually found the theme and I just just helped her to get it up and running. I do agree though – very cool!

  2. I am reading Dark Moon and I am liking it so far! I got in from NetGalley. I will be doing a review of it & I would love to put it on your Facebook, but I can’t find one for you. I will also post it on RWA and Destiny Romance Facebook. Do you want me to post it here? Please let me know!

    1. Thank you so much for reaching out to me, Patty. I’m so thrilled that you are enjoying Dark Moon. I have sent you an email with links to my FB page etc. I’m looking forward to reading your review. Once you’ve recieved my email and written the review, just email me the link and I’ll post it on my blog. Thanks once again for letting me know how much you’re enjoying Dark Moon. It’s made my day.

  3. Leisl, I have finished reading your book, Climbing Fear, which I absolutely loved.
    I found this book easy to get into, and I found it hard to put down.
    I would like to read more like this by you, but have exhausted by search.
    Can you please let me know where I can buy more of these books.
    Regards Gayle

    1. Hi Gayle,

      So lovely to hear from you – and sorry it’s taken so long to get back to you, the comment was hidden from me and I only found it now.
      I’m thrilled you enjoyed Climbing Fear. The next in the series, Blazing Fear, is out in ebook – you’ll find the links on my website. I also have another romantic suspense novel, Dangerous Echoes, which is out in ebook as well, but it’s not tied into the CoalCliff Stud series. There also might be some print copies of those that you could buy through online sites if you only like print. If you enjoy paranormal romance with a lot of suspense, there’s my Pack Bound Series. Witch Bound, a prequel novel, has just been released and you can get it in paperback as well as ebook. All the links to the books are on my website.
