Leah Venegas grew up in beautiful northwestern Montana. She graduated with a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Systems Management from the University of Montana in 2000.

Leah went on to pursue her career in the computer industry, working as a Software Engineer and Engineering Manager for 17 years. Because of her adventurous heart, Leah has spent much of her life traveling and seeing the world. She lived and traveled in Europe for four years while working as a Software Engineer for the Army. She has also been to South America to visit ruins and beaches. Her all-time, favorite travel destinations were Stonehenge in England and Tikal in Guatemala.

In 2017, with the support of her amazing husband, Leah decided to take a break from writing code and focus on her true love of writing stories-a passion of hers since childhood. She earned her MBA in 2017 while writing her first children's book. Leah returned to northwestern Montana in 2015 to reconnect with her roots. She currently lives there with her loving husband, beautiful daughter, and her mini Schnauzer.
