Author Biography

Leigh Roberts is a storyteller who weaves into her books spiritual truths, possibilities, and answers she discovers along the way, and which she hopes will inspire and help others.

As the shyest child in school, she wanted only to fly under the radar and get through each day. She comforted herself by developing a rich inner life, an imaginary world she would escape to each night when she went to bed, far away from the real world in which she seemed to have no place.

But the days passed and that rich inner life she developed stayed with her, a well of imagination and comfort where the answers to “What if?” lived. Now she no longer needs to create a hideaway from reality and it has become a magical source to dip into and draw from.

Leigh's books explore that question, "What If?" discovering along the way alternate histories, alternative universes, people who (though not all perhaps fully human) are dedicated to service to the Great Spirit and to their planet and all its creatures. These are universal stories about the pursuit of what we all hold dear—love, family, justice, mercy, faith, belonging, contribution—and finding the strength within to face and defeat that which threatens to take them from us.

Khon'Tor's Wrath by Leigh Roberts is the story of a healer, the leader, and his mate. Adia was a revered Healer with a fair heart and just spirit. She set off for another village to give a bag of goldenseal to Ithua, a fellow Healer. Adia's heightened seventh sense led her to a scene of horrible murder and gore, complete with a living infant. However, the infant was a Waschini, a people known for their cruelty, disrespect for nature, and other beings. The Waschinis incurred the hatred of all. Still, as a Healer and a woman, empathy won, and she took the baby home. This singular act snowballed into a series of events that would determine the fate of Adia, Khon'Tor, who loved but now hated her, and Hakani, Khon'Tor's jealous and spiteful mate.

Khon'Tor's Wrath by Leigh Roberts is the first installment in the series titled Wrak-Ayya: The Age of Shadows. It is a novel woven around compassion, strife, hate, malice, deception, power, and honor or its lack. The prime thing that struck me about this novel was the First Law. It protected women, especially on consent and abuse. I wish the real world made women feel safer this way. The plot, storyline, and range of characters also drew me in. There were formidable and redeeming qualities about the cast, the alpha women, and even the villains. Khon'Tor's Wrath was captivating, so enthralling that it evoked anger among other emotions from me. I thought Khon'Tor was beyond reproach, but I was surprised! I loved Leigh's writing style and crisp editing. Will Acaraho give in to his desires? Please, write more, Leigh.
