Praise for Wait for Me
“Caroline Leech’s story shines a beautifully written light on the precarious nature of love and war and asks its readers to believe, even when the hero doesn’t, that love can prevail. This is a book that makes you want to curl up with a cuppa and read straight through till the morning.”
Kathi Appelt, National Book Award Finalist and Newbery Honor Winner
Praise for In Another Time
“A glowing story of friendship, growth, and a steadfast first love, as teenage Maisie negotiates the forests of the heart and of World War II Scotland with equal determination. An inspiring tribute to thousands of ordinary women who became extraordinary heroes.”
New York Times bestselling author of Code Name Verity
Praise for Welsh National Opera - Celebrating the First Sixty Years
"A stunning book celebrating the first sixty years of our internationally acclaimed opera company."
I am Scottish/Texan novelist, ghostwriter, editor and coach, and I’ve been writing professionally for over three decades.
My YA historical novels, WAIT FOR ME (2017) and IN ANOTHER TIME (2018) were published in the US and the UK by Harper Collins. Both set in Scotland during World War Two, WAIT FOR ME won the 2014 Joan Lowery Nixon Award at the Society of Children’s Book Writers and Illustrators in Houston, as well as the YA categories of both the Romance Writers of America Emily and Lone Star competitions. IN ANOTHER TIME was named a Junior Library Guild Pick in fall 2018. Both books were also featured in the TXLA Spirit of Texas High School reading program 2019. Since then I have been writing contemporary women’s fiction, with one novel currently out on submission and another underway.
As well as working on my own fiction, I run my own writing business called CarolineLeechWrites…. Under that banner I write for other individuals as a ghostwriter—fiction and non-fiction—and for businesses as a copy/feature/web writer, specializing in the performing and literary arts. I coach and mentor other prospective or established authors to conceptualize and share ideas on specific projects and on their general career plans, and I assist writers with developmental and line edits on their manuscripts.
