Welcome to ReallyLeah. And, yes, my name is Leah.
PASSION. Once upon a time, I dreamt of becoming a motivational speaker and training facilitator. But life had other plans. After several sickening years, I began writing children’s stories and personal essays on healing and faith. My heart still breaks for caregiving families which is why I co-lead a small group for family caregivers.
PRODUCTIVITY. Lately, I get my thrills from writing character-driven fiction. Right now I am playing with short (love-ish) stories. Academically, I earned my BSBA in Finance and Real Estate, and an MFA in Creative Writing. In 2020, I entered my first writing contest and won the first place prize in Short Non-Fiction at the Florida Christian Writers Conference. This year my short story won a place in the Word Weaver’s Summer online anthology.
PURPOSE. Besides business and writing, I enjoy everything that makes life better. That includes nutritional foods, good music, and dancing in my chair.
There’s a whole lot more I could tell you but you’d probably rather discover it for yourself.
I hope you enjoy your visits. 😉 I’m glad you stopped by.
