In addition to writing dark speculative fiction for over twenty-five years, Leigh M. Lane has earned a black belt in karate, sang the National Anthem for the opening of a Dodger's game, and sung lead and backup vocals in bands ranging from classic rock to the blues. She currently lives in the dusty outskirts of Sin City with her husband, an editor and educator, and the recently departed spirit of one very spoiled cat.
Her passion for stories in the vein of Serling, Vonnegut, Orwell, Wells, Bradbury, Poe, and Dahl is evident in her writing, and she strives to keep their literary traditions alive through her own work, paying homage to the dark and gritty dystopia, the pulp sci-fi era, and the Gothic romance with a contemporary flair.
Her published works include traditional Gothic horror, Finding Poe; dystopian World-Mart trilogy; dark allegorical tale, Myths of Gods; Revelations, a collaborative urban fantasy trilogy; and dramatic horror novella series, Jane the Hippie Vampire.
