Hello! I'm Leigh (and yes, that's still pronounced "lee" not "lay"). It came to my attention that I’ve had the same bio for over a year, so here goes an attempt at trying to make myself sound more intelligent and interesting than before:

I’m still a five-foot-eight nineteen-year-old living a secret life on the internet (though slightly less secret now, as I worked up the courage to tell my two best friends). As of now, I’m a first year student at the University of Birmingham. Things about me you need to be aware of? Probably the following: I have a love-hate relationship with writing; I enjoy having people fangirl over my British accent, and I am obsessed with the TV show Catfish. To the point where it’s probably unhealthy.

Obviously, there’s more to me than that, but you’re probably better off searching through my ask.fm (25000 answers strong – get a life, Leigh) if you want to know the ins and outs.

Enjoy your visit to my profile, I guess. Better go read my stories now.

I'm so gutted this story isn't completed! When I saw that there was an author's note at the end I assumed that it was finished :( Now I guess I have to wait... but I will definitely continue following. It's really cute and fun to read, and the characters are adorable. I am definitely waiting for a plot twist that I feel may be in the works... guess I'll just have to wait and see! Nice work :)

Hi Leigh! First off, just wanted to say (although I'm sure you've heard this many times by now) that you are an absolutely fantastic writer and by far my top favorite here on Wattpad! Second, I was wondering if you made your own covers to your stories or do you have fans that gladly send you covers and then you use them but give them credit?  I was simply curious! :)
