Leigh Fallon was born in South Africa, raised in Dublin, Ireland, and moved to Cork in her twenties. While living in beautiful Kinsale, her novel, Carrier of the Mark, was conceived. She promptly abandoned her riveting career in corporate treasury and discovered Inkpop, a website for budding writers of teen fiction. Within weeks, her manuscript hit the coveted top-five spot and was reviewed by an editor at HarperCollins. A few emails and some hysterical screaming later, she signed her first deal. Leigh and her family now share their time between Ireland and the United States.
“First-time novelist Fallon has blended a unique tale of magic, folklore, friendship, and sweet romance into a tantalizing mystery with a modicum of danger.”
“With its page-turning pacing, tension is high and readers will want to read future episodes.”
-Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA)
“An engaging story.”
“Combine prophecy, amulets, and a secret society and you have the makings of a fine paranormal romance.”
-School Library Journal
