My style

When writing for clients, I immerse myself in the brand. I  bring my usability analyst experience to the table when working across digital medium platforms. When writing fiction, I write  about characters at a crossroads. I put my characters on both literal and metaphorical journeys. I also enjoy coming of age pieces. Finally, I do write in both realist and surrealist styles. 


What Others Have Said

  I "love" Burt 

"This pleasing April blossom managed to put Edward D. Wood, Jr. and Burt Reynolds into my mental holding cell at the very same time. It also conjured up disco-era open shirts and gold chains which lay in exposed field of man moss and treasure trails.I blame and praise Ms. Leah for such unsettling images."   -  Walking Boss Cooper


The Family Blend 

" Wow – Leah Sackett’s The Family Blend is a masterful journey of haunted memory and hard hitting truth. I love the way she blended the light and darkness and brought both together in the ending. Would love to see more by this author!"  -
