Professionally, Leanne is a lover of great copy, fact-based journalism, and unexpected concepts. When she is not at the office, she's either trying to finish a novel for middle-grade readers or watching escapist TV. You may also see two small children following her around. Luckily, they are cute. Leanne has a master’s degree in poetry—and she's seen the musical Hamilton twice and the band Wilco 872 times.
