I write scary stuff and angsty stuff. Technically, my novels are YA, but I write mostly for me. 

If you stare at the logo in my background for about 15 seconds and then look at a white surface, you'll see a shadow of the image. Yes, I am easily amused.

I represent the better half of the co-hosts responsible for The Writers XL podcast. Speaking of halves, our show is half advice for writers, half banter only we find funny. You've been warned.

The mandatory bio ...
Shelly X. Leonn is the author of The Broken Series. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in journalism, Shelly worked at her hometown newspaper as the web and youth editor. During her time advising the youth staff, Shelly realized her true calling was to teaching. Her years in education have been spent in middle school and high school language arts classrooms. She is also an adjunct professor. She and her two boys reside in Affton, and she enjoys reading, writing, outdoor activities, anime, video games, and other dorky pastimes. Shelly is represented by Stephanie Hansen at Metamorphosis Literary Agency.

I lied. There is no point in waiting to publish more of Nef9 while I'm working on this other stuff. Update just posted, with two more on the way this week. Enjoy!
