In the Spotlight: Lizzie T. Leaf

12 08 2008

Award winning author, Lizzie T. Leaf, is known for her ‘humor with heat.’  She has numerous e-books in varying lengths and a print book, Dead Done Right, is set to release this fall. Working madly to meet book contract deadlines for the rest of the year, she also writes articles for Women’s Edition Magazine.


Since discovering the fun of writing paranormal, that genre is her focus of the moment.  On the planning board for 2008 is additional paranormals and a women’s fiction that falls well outside her usual works.


When not chained to the computer keyboard, Lizzie enjoys time with her family, reading other authors and traveling with her husband.

Getting to know Lizzie:


Tell us about your upcoming release and what you hope readers will enjoy about it.

Dead Faint released May 23rd by Aspen Mountain Press, a paranormal with humor that I hope readers will enjoy.


An expanded version of Call Me is scheduled to release June, 2008; a re-release of Boy Toy is set for July, 2008.  Hopefully the heat and the humor in both of these will make for fun reads.


What do you like to do when you’re not working?  Travel, travel and oh yeah, travel.  When not traveling, time with the family, reading, gardening and creating more fantasy worlds.


What season is your favorite and why?  Fall.  I love the crisp mornings and warm days.  When I can get back to the east coast during this time of year, I love the crunch of leaves under my feet when wandering through the woods and all the brilliant colors.


What would we find on your bookcase if we looked? A real potpourri of books.  Everything from biographies to horror and of course lots of romance.  What is one of your favorite authors?  One!  Only one???  No way. 


What was the last book you read (e or print) and did you like it? I just finished a book on marketing.  When I managed to stay awake.


What makes a good book?  For me, a good story, characters I enjoy and definitely an interesting story.


What’s the most interesting thing you’ve ever done?  Hmmm…requiring lots of thinking…man, do I have a headache.  Okay, the winner is getting married in Scotland at the same castle where Mary, Queen of Scots spent her honeymoon after her third marriage.


Boxers or briefs?  Have to go with boxers, make for easy access without damage to the jewels.


Ben Affleck or Matt Damon to save the world?  Matt Damon.  After all, Jason Bourne can take out a whole bunch of government agents after him and without remembering how he learned those talents.


What else would you like readers to know about you or your work?  I love my work and am delighted when I hear from readers who have enjoyed one of my books.


Where are you published?  Aspen Mountain Press.


Thanks for coming! J

Don’t let Lizzie fool you! She’s a fun and crazy person to be with. She’s all dignified now, but she can sure let that red hair down when she wants! LOL!

So far I love your work. It makes it more real if the people that you write of have normal traits instead of being always cool and always beautiful. Looking forward to working with you!!!

Hey Miss Lena…my hair isn’t long enough to let down…LOL. I just tried to answer the questions without sounding as crazy as I am (g). Delighted to see you here my friend. I miss you!

Thank you for having me today and for all the nice things you said about the Dead series. Probably won’t be another one until next year because of all the books stacked up in front of it…LOL. But, that being said one of the characters started talking to me last night. Made a few quick notes and told them to go away…we’ll see how long that lasts.

Scotland was wonderful and on the agenda to return one day.

I happen to love Mary Janice Davidson! I will have to check out Lizzie’s dead stories if you are comparing them to MJD!

12 08 2008

Oh yes Merri, Lizzie’s Dead series makes me think of MJD’Betsy series or even her Mermaid one as well. Full of humor and romance. A wicked c ombination in my book! *grins*

Hi Lizzie! Great interview! I can see we are of the same mind when it comes to traveling. I’m a wanderer at heart, I guess.

I really love the wit and realism you bring to your characters! Looking forward to checking out your Dead series!
