Léonie Kelsall

Léonie Kelsall

Léonie grew up in South Australia, initially on the beautiful Fleurieu Peninsula in a tiny town where the school had a total enrolment of only eleven students, and later on a farm near the stunning Murray River. The isolation of her rural upbringing —and her parents’ brave refusal to provide a television — led to a wild love affair with books.

She couldn’t wait to hit the bright lights of the big city when she graduated — but a few years working in government departments saw her longing to make her way back to the country. She now finds herself dividing her time between her professional counselling practice in the beautiful Adelaide Hills, and her childhood farm, which provides the setting for many of her stories.
