She spent her early career in the music industry running Setanta Records, an independent record label, and managing bands, most notably The Divine Comedy. After leaving the music industry, she trained as an actor, dabbling in directing and producing as well as performing, before deciding to write her stories down. Maya lives in Brighton with her husband and two sons.
M. G Leonard’s real name is Maya Gabrielle, but her pen name is M.G. Leonard as she promised her eldest son she would use his middle name as her pen surname. When you talk to her in person, call her Maya, but if you’re talking about her writing, call her M. G Leonard. Her stories are for young people, or people who are young at heart, who embrace nature and its wild, crazy majesty.
