Gale Leach's first book, The Art of Pickleball, won the Arizona Book Award in 2007. This success spurred her to try fiction, a lifelong dream. In 2010 she established her own publishing company, Two Cats Press, and published her first novel, Bruce and the Road to Courage, a heroic fantasy for children, along with the books of several other authors. Gale added three more books to the "Bruce and Friends" series, all of which captured multiple awards, and is writing another. She also recently completed the first novel in a new YA epic fantasy series and is seeking an agent for traditional publishing. Besides her love of writing fiction, Gale enjoys singing and playing Celtic music. She lives in Arizona with her husband, two dogs, and one cat.
