ABOUT BRENDA JOYCE LEAHY

  • After twenty years of practising law, I turned to my first love of creative writing. My Young Adult novel, The Art of Rebellion, is a historical novel set in Paris in 1900 (Rebelight Publishing, 2016). My picture book, Flip, Flop, Flapjack! will be published in 2023 (Red Barn Books). I’ve also had a non-fiction short story, Robin Hood of the Prairies, published in 2020: YYC POP, Poetic Portraits of People (Frontenac House) and poetry published in chapbooks.  I live with my family near the Rocky Mountains, in Calgary, Alberta.
