About Leigh Lincoln:
Leigh has spent the better part of the last thirty years involved in homeless and poverty advocacy in one way or another. Her novel – Road Home – was born out of this work. She wanted to make people think about their lives and how they live. But most importantly, about how they treat others and how they want to be treated.
Her second novel – Road to Freedom – looks at how our lives don't always follow the path we choose. But yet somehow we must pick up the broken pieces and move on. How we grow and where our strength comes from is what's most important. Leigh loves to travel, paint and hike. You never know where she'll end up next, for she's on her own journey of discovery.
What inspires you to write?
I'm inspired by hearing stories when I travel. I love to meet people and learn what's important to them.
What authors do you read when you aren’t writing?
I'm not sure I really can name a favorite – I'll read almost anything.
Tell us about your writing process.
I'm definitely a seat of my pants writer. I just keep throwing stuff on a page until something sticks.
For Fiction Writers: Do you listen (or talk to) to your characters?
I talk to my characters all of the time. I often wake up in the middle of the night to make notes about a dream I had where I was interacting with them. I do think it's what makes them all so real.
What advice would you give other writers?
My advice is to trust your instincts. There will always be someone who will be happy to tell you what you're doing wrong but few who will tell you what you're doing right. Thus, you need to be your own best advocate for what you and your work needs.
How did you decide how to publish your books?
I self-published after a bad experience with a publisher. I figured I was better off on my own than trusting someone else with my baby (book).
What do you think about the future of book publishing?
I think as long as a book is professionally edited, self publishing is the way to go.
What genres do you write?: Literary Fiction, Women's Fiction, Christian Fiction
What formats are your books in?: eBook, Print, Both eBook and Print, Audiobook
