IMG_20200603_143427_134These are the books that I bought before lockdown to read, but I didn’t realise how time consuming looking after a toddler full time would be! My hubby (also a writer, the author and poet Joseph Robert) is working in the spare room-turned office. In between checking my own work emails and entertaining the babe, I get snatched moments of chipping away at my next novel WIP. This has meant not as much reading time as I would have preferred! I’m keeping my lockdown list in my handbag for portability and to keep chubby little fingers at bay. I might get a quiet reading moment one of these days!

About Leilanie Stewart

Leilanie Stewart is an author and poet from Belfast, Northern Ireland. She has written four novels, including award-winning ghost horror, The Blue Man, as well as three poetry collections. Her writing confronts the nature of self; her novels feature main characters on a dark psychological journey who have a crisis of identity and create a new sense of being. She began writing for publication while working as an English teacher in Japan, a career pathway that has influenced themes in her writing. Her former career as an Archaeologist has also inspired her writing and she has incorporated elements of archaeology and mythology into both her fiction and poetry. In addition to promoting her own work, Leilanie runs Bindweed Magazine, a creative writing literary journal with her writer husband, Joseph Robert. Aside from publishing pursuits, Leilanie enjoys spending time with her husband and their lively literary lad, a voracious reader of sea monster books. CONNECT WITH ME ON SOCIAL MEDIA:
