Hailing from Baltimore, MD, Leah Scheier works as a novelist, a pediatrician and a mother of five.
Leah's parents were immigrants to the US and she credits them for her “renaissance” education. Leah and her sisters took violin lessons and were encouraged to read and write stories from an early age.
Despite an intensive art education and her early love of writing, she was told (repeatedly) that being an author doesn’t pay, so she chose medicine as a career because she loved working with people and enjoyed science. She put writing on the backburner until she finished residency and found that she finally had time to pursue her hobby.
Her first novel, "Secret Letters", published in 2012 by Disney/Hyperion, earned rave reviews from SLJ, Booklist, VOYA and Publishers Weekly. "Your Voice Is All I Hear" and "Rules of Rain" (Sourcebooks 2015 and 2017) were praised for their sensitive depiction of schizophrenia and teens on the spectrum, respectively.
Leah's fourth novel, "The Last Words We Said" (Simon & Schuster) releases on August 31, 2021.
