Leigh Duncan is the award-winning author of more than two dozen novels, novellas and short stories. She sold her first, full-length novel, The Officer’s Girl, to Harlequin American Romance in 2010. Leigh went on to write seven more books for Harlequin, including her very popular Christmas book, Rancher’s Son, the first book in her the Glades County Cowboys Series. In addition to these heartwarming romances, Leigh wrote more complex and emotional stories such as, The Orange Blossom Series and Pattern of Deceit, which have resonated with her readers.

In 2017, Leigh was thrilled when Hallmark Publishing asked her to help kick off their new line with Journey Back To Christmas, a novelization based on Hallmark’s most popular Christmas movie. Soon after, Leigh began writing the brand new Heart’s Landing series for Hallmark. These books will launch in the Spring of 2020 with A Simple Wedding and A Cottage Wedding. An Amazon best-selling author and a National Readers’ Choice Award winner, Leigh lives on Florida’s East Coast where she writes women’s fiction and sweet, contemporary romance with a dash of Southern sass.

There will be books available for purchase at the event or you can bring your own copies to have signed.
