Leigh McLeroy writes and speaks with a passion for God and a keen eye for His presence in everyday life. A former ghostwriter with seven books to her credit, Leigh's first solo effort, Moments for Singles, was published in 2004. She was a contributor to Rebecca St. James's Sister Freaks in 2006, and is the author of The Beautiful Ache (2007), The Sacred Ordinary (2008) and God's Cigar Box (2009). Leigh is also the creator of Wednesday words, an email devotional with a life of its own. She makes her home in Houston, Texas, where she is raising Owen - who may be the most adorable spaniel ever named after an Inkling, a John Irving character, and a Puritan preacher.
