The new writing talent, that is Leigh Fallon, came to my attention following a blog hop visit to JoAnne, over at ‘The Fairytale Nerd’, where she featured Leigh and her book ‘Carrier Of The Mark’, as part of her regular meme ‘Teaser Tuesday‘.
I have to admit, that as ‘Carrier Of The Mark’ has been allocated to the genre of Paranormal Romance, it was not at first glance a book that I would want to rush out and read, as this is a genre which I have read only sparingly and know little about.
The cover art, on the other hand, fascinated and beguiled me with its strength and beauty, hence it was featured as my contribution for the meme ‘Cover Art Weekend Blog Hop’.
Leigh describes her cover as: “The blue dress wearing, red haired vixen.”
Whilst adding a brief synopsis to give the post added interest, I found myself wanting to know more about both book and author, hence Leigh Fallon finds herself featured by Fiction Books, as an author on the ascent and ‘The Carrier Of The Mark’ is heading onto my reading list.

She makes close friends with the girls in her class, her relationship with her dad is better than ever, and she finds herself inexplicably drawn to gorgeous, mysterious Adam DeRis.

Spotlight On Leigh Fallon
Leigh Fallon, although born in Durban, South Africa, was raised from an early age, in Dublin, Ireland.
Growing up in the foothills of the Dublin Mountains, acquiring an Irish Brogue and attending a convent school, was however not nearly romantic enough for Leigh, who often fantasized about what life in South Africa could have been like, exotic accent included.
When she married, her sailor husband whisked her off to Cork, in the South of Ireland.
From there she had plenty of travel experience, although only around Europe, as she carried out her various working duties in the finance sector.
She was able to focus on her new found passion for writing, when she gave up work to raise her family, only to be whisked away again, only this time somewhere much more exotic…
The couple and their four children now live in Massachusetts USA, where, what is now her career change to aspiring author, is gathering pace.
Leigh is currently working on the next chapter in the ‘Carrier’ series and has a great blog where she regales all the tribulations and triumphs of getting ‘The Carrier Of The Mark’ to market. So why not stop by and meet her, and maybe leave her a word or two of encouragement.
