A Florida girl by birth, but New Englander at heart, Britt Leigh lives and writes down the block from either cherry blossoms or snow, depending on the season. She feels blessed to have a job where she can pray and play with prose.
Her first writing for teens appeared in Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Teens Talk Middle School and Teens Talk Getting into College. Her first book, Ten Commandments for Kissing Gloria Jean, was published in 2014 by Pauline Books and Media.
Britt holds a Master of Fine Arts in Writing for Children from Simmons College, a bachelor’s degree in English, and a bachelor’s degree in Journalism from the University of Florida (Go Gators!). She also has earned a Catechetical Certificate from the Theological Institute for the New Evangelization.
When she’s not immersed in writing, reading, talking, reviewing, or assisting books, she loves spending time with her 5 ‘Fs’: faith, family, friends, football, and fancy. She once heard that authors are forever writing the same story over and over again. If that’s true, her story is love.
