Bio & Teaser for my book

Although we are still in the very early stage of turning my manuscript into a book we do have the Bio & Teaser.  My next post will reveal the New York Times bestselling author who wrote my introduction!

Bunny Leach – Bio

Bunny Leach grew up in Ann Arbor, Michigan.  After living in Atlanta, Georgia, and traveling extensively through Asia, Australia and Europe she settled in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.  There, in her cottage by the Atlantic Ocean, she wrote her first book, an inspirational memoir based on the death of her teenage daughter, Nicki, from a malignant brain tumor. 

When she’s not writing she can be found walking on the beach collecting shells, or running.  Leach also enjoys meditation and yoga.  Her son, Jesse, a musician and black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu is her most important reader.



At one time, her life seemed perfect. Bunny Leach traveled with her husband and two children on the professional tennis circuit.  Then, when he retired, they packed up and moved to paradise.  But things went terribly wrong in 2005 when their sixteen-year-old daughter, Nicki, was diagnosed with a malignant brain tumor and died three years later. After that, the marriage ended. When her son went off to live his own life, she realized she was now alone. But not completely… She put her faith in God and kept her promise to her daughter to “be happy, Mommy.” She set out to renew her life and follow her heart.  In doing that, she found love again and, in honor of her daughter, built a foundation of hope for teenagers and young adults with cancer.
