After a brief career in criminal law, Leanne Kale Sparks is returning to her first love--writing about murder and mayhem. Currently, she is working on a new series featuring an FBI agent hunting down her best friend's murderer. The backdrop is the Rocky Mountains of Colorado, the playground of her youth, and the place that will always be home. When not writing, she and her husband spend time reading, mountain biking, and spoiling their German Shepherd, Zoe. And drinking wine.
