Leah Dobrinska earned her degree in English Literature from UW-Madison and has since worked as a freelance writer, editor, and content marketer.
As a kid, she hoped to grow up to be either Nancy Drew or Elizabeth Bennet. Now, she fulfills that dream by writing mysteries and love stories.
She's a sucker for a good sentence, a happy ending, and the smell of books—both old and new.
Leah lives out her very own happily ever after in a small Wisconsin town with her husband and their gaggle of kids. When she's not handing out snacks, visiting local parks, and doing projects around the house, Leah enjoys reading and running.
Leah is a member of the International Thriller Writers Association and is represented by Dawn Dowdle at Blue Ridge Literary Agency.
Daphne, Velma, and Scooby Doo.
I've always been drawn to mysteries because I want to see good prevail over evil. A character's quest for truth and justice will never not be compelling. That being said, I'm sort of a big softie! Enter the cozy mystery genre!
Cozy mysteries are free from graphic details but still include everything I love about a good whodunit: clever plots, dreamy settings, and lovable characters with whom I want to be real life friends.
Elizabeth Bennet + Mr. Darcy = Perfection
Give me all the enemies to lovers, friends to lovers, second chance romances, military romances, grumpy/sunshine, and only one bed tropes. Basically, if it's got a happily ever after, I'm here for it.
I've had so much fun dreaming up stories where two people grow, change, and fall in love (with a meddling, well-meaning community looking on). Mapleton is my happy place, and if you love love stories, I hope you'll try my small town romance novels.
