Hi, I'm LeAnna. I've loved the fantasy genre since I was two and could supposedly quote the entire Wizard of Oz movie. Around the fourth grade I discovered I had a knack for creating characters in the form of imaginary friends. Some say I pestered the poor teacher's assistant on the playground with tales of my "friends" adventures. But thanks to her suggestion that I should write them down, here I am. Sadly, I can no longer remember the name of that TA or I would thank her here. It wasn't until high school that I started writing full chapter novels, starting with Star Wars fan fiction.
The Alestrion Chronicles is a story that has been stirring my soul for years now. When the image of a slave girl with white hair named Aria popped into my head, I thought I had the beginings of an exciting journey. Adding the griffin and phoenix, I feel I have woven an original tale of freedom, discovery, and triumph.
