Artist, writer, mom, wife, medicated. Probably evil. Probably. I fangirl in phases and I live for witty dialogue. Expect sass. So much sass.

I take naps under my desk at work, eat way too much or not enough, and have a love of Chuck Taylors, black eyeliner, and lipstick as red as my hair. Or is that the other way around?

I support flannel as a lifestyle, and one time I made Patrick Stewart laugh. Those things aren't related.

Surprisingly bi. Tastes like chicken.

I'm harmless. "Like a rattlesnake." (says @RealLifeDaniel)

You should follow @circa1927, @Bluebell84, & @BennyBedlam. Don't question it, just do it. They're brilliant.

I write with the awesome @FranklyMisterS. He's co-authoring the "Ready" series with me, and has the "companion" book of one shots up on his profile. We call it "Fantastic Bastards". He is also brilliant. Really, if you follow me, you should follow him.

AND WE WON A WATTY FOR READY! 2017 category "The Breakthroughs".

*Wattpad Featured Author* (along with the above mentioned Frank for "Ready")- yeah, I'm bragging.

I'm on Facebook (Leigh Austin) and Twitter (@General__Leigh, that's 2 underscores). Find me.

My covers are mostly done by Bluebell84, so no, I can't help you. She's a magician.

Alternate bio, courtesy of Gemma Runner-

"Leigh Austin. Wife and mother of 14. Rock farmer in the barren lands of Antarctica. Lover of hand knitted underpants and aged cheddar. Can't stand the smell of mulberries. Writes about the dreams she has while high on mushroom tea."

Really I just use spray paint in my unventilated basement "studio".

Sorry about the brief, two week hiatus from The Best You Ever Had. Writer's block and a couple of side projects and an art commission had me struggling. I just updated it though, and I hope you'll fo...
