 Leigh Macfarlane's newest non-fiction release


M.K. Penner was a 737 Captain by trade and a Canadian landscape oil painter into the wee hours of the morning.  He started painting to heal from the death of his brother and continued painting for the next six decades.  This art memoir contains his story and his tips and also includes more than one hundred and fourty images of that artist's work and life.

Coming Summer of 2024

Leigh's New Stand-Alone Romance.

What if you were supposed to go on a holiday with your guy... and he ended things instead? Would you still go?

And if you did go, would you kiss another guy underneath a waterfall?


Because to her surprise, that is how the whole adventure starts for Rory.

As I've started writing this book, I've decided that doing the story justice is going to take a bit more time than expected. That's going to put the finish date of this summer read... past summer. So, reluctantly, I've decided to postpone the launch. Potentially, I may launch before Christmas. Who doesn't like a reminder that summer is coming when temperatures are sub-zero. Then again, potentially I'll hold off and let you enjoy this one on the beach next summer. I'll let you know. 

In the meantime, I'm making it up to everyone by putting out a backlist novel in audiobook format! Stay tuned for more details soon,
