Leenie Brown is the mother of two fabulous (most of the time) teenage boys and the wife of one sweet and thoughtful man. She is somewhat of a grammar nerd, her two youngest sisters telling stories of Leenie correcting their grammar in letters and sending the letters back to them. Leenie does NOT remember doing that, sure they exaggerate!
She loves to read, and was that kid, under the covers with the flashlight, reading until the wee hours of the morning. All her heroes when growing up were authors. She loved what they did, and the worlds they could paint with words were (and still are) her favourite playgrounds!
She also loves to write. It wasn’t until 2103 that her love of reading and playing with stories, and her love of writing crashed into each other. What happened to cause this collision? Leenie discovered Jane Austen Fan Fiction! She delighted to learn there were others that continued plots and varied the stories in their imaginations just as she did. She started by reading, but eventually began to argue (in her mind mostly) with the authors about their choices. So, she decided to put some of her ideas down on virtual paper, and after much encouragement from her dear husband, signed up for two JAFF forums and began sharing stories there. Now, she has taken it a step further.
