Born on a dark and stormy night on the other side of the world from Richmond, VA, Leila Gaskin began a life full of imaginative wanderings. Taking inspiration from the world around her, she is constantly asking ‘what if…’ and writing down the stories that emerge.

She is a member of the James River Writers and the author of several short stories ranging from horror, speculative fiction, and science fiction. Her debut novel is Hot Flashes, an urban fantasy.

With her dog as her co-pilot and the cat as the navigator, Leila explores her world and tells her stories.

Welcome to my world.

  1. Hi there! Your blog caught my eye on blog surfer because we use the same WP theme, and low and behold, you’re also a writer as I am. I enjoy your voice, and liked the bit of Ella that I read (couldn’t finish — time was rushing by). I’ve been planning to shift some of the features of my website to WP and you’ve shown me how well it can be done.

    Come over and visit me on my blog sometime.

    All the best,
    Frankie Robertson

  2. Hi, Leila. I am going to sound like such a newbie here – how would I actually do a “Versatile Blogger” award post like you did? I looked for instructions on support and forums, but I couldn’t find detailed information about it – just links to people’s posts about winning! But how does one get the graphic? Is it sent to you by WordPress? How do you formally nominate the other 15 people? Is it just by the act of linking them in your post? And insights you could offer would be most welcome!

  3. Hi Leila!
    I nominated you for the Liebster Blogger Award. First time dealing with one of these, so hope you don’t mind! Check the latest post on my blog for details.

      Do you have siblings or are you an only child? Oldest of 5.
      What was your favorite pastime as a child? Escaping through reading.
      What do you want to be when you “grow up”? Do I have to?
