Thank you for visiting my website! I'm Leah Elliott. I grew up on the Kaibab Plateau of northern Arizona, and I have always felt a special affinity for both landscapes and language. During a seven-year sojourn on the Northern Plains, I completed B.A. and M.M. degrees in music at North Dakota State University. With my writing, I strive to illuminate the dark corners where untruth lies, in myself, in others, in our world. I live with my partner, children, and stepchildren among the forests, hills, and streams of central North Carolina, and teach English at a public high school.
