Leah Cutter

leah_cutter_133x200Leah Cutter has never known a time when she didn’t want to be a writer. Mind you, she took her time figuring out how to do it, traipsing around the world and working various places first: She was a digger at an archaeological site in England, taught English in Hungary and Taiwan, and then bartended in Thailand.

Eventually, she did figure the writing bit and now has a dozen novels to her name (with more coming soon!) Plus more short stories than she cares to count.

She lives in Seattle with her cat, writes full time, and spends a lot of time swing dancing, drinking excellent coffee, quilting, volunteering, as well as, you know, writing.

Then Gloria shows up. She wants Franklin to steal the crop of his rival, Karl—they compete every year at the Kentucky State Fair for the blue ribbon prize for who grows the best popping corn.
