Leesa Bow grew up in Broken Hill, far west NSW. She moved to Adelaide, and married a football player. Inevitably her four daughters were also sporty. In 2009, Leesa began writing when her second daughter became sick with cancer. Initially her writing was therapeutic, but when her daughter got the all clear, she decided to continue writing seriously.
Leesaís first ebook, Winning the Player was released in April 2014, and has a sport theme.
Nowadays, Leesa lives in Adelaide, close to the beach, with her family. Leesaís latest novel, Charming the Outback, set in Broken Hill, has just been released.
