About Leigh Roberts
When Leigh Roberts is not caught up in the fantasy world of Etera with Adia, Khon'Tor, Acaraho, Oh’Dar, and Nadiwani, she is enjoying the beauty of the rural area in which she lives with her husband and several spoiled Pomeranians.
An avid reader since early childhood, she grew up on superhero comics, science fiction stories (Arthur C. Clarke, Isaac Asimov), and television shows like The Twilight Zone, The Outer Limits, and Star Trek.
Star Trek had a huge influence on her thinking and taught her the infinite possibilities of imagination—and how to split infinitives. Spoiler alert: you may find a Klingon word or phrase dropped in here or there, or a blatant, unapologetic recreation of a famous Star Trek TOS scene!
She hopes that through her writing, awareness of Sasquatch will spread, ultimately providing protection should they be proven to exist.
She loves being an author, and her heart’s desire is to be writing for a long, long time to come. Following Series One: Wrak-Ayya The Age of Shadows, will come Wrak-Wavara The Age of Darkness and then Wrak-Ashwea The Age of Light.

Titles By Leigh Roberts
Some men are wise. Some men are humble. Some men can see their own hand in the troubles that come their way.
Snide Tucker was none of those.
Bitter over his lot in life, Tucker sets out to destroy the happiness of those around him. When Grace Webb turns away his affections and Newill Storis refuses to succumb to his attempts at blackmail, Tucker stirs up suspicions over the truth behind the deaths of Miss Vivian and her husband Ben. As a result, Acise must face complications with her pregnancy alone when her life-walker is arrested for their murders. Oh’Dar’s only chance of escaping the hangman’s noose hinges on revealing the truth about their deaths. And the existence of the People.
As new life enters Etera, shameful secrets are shaken out of hiding. Secrets that have haunted Adia and Acaraho for decades. It is said the truth will set one free—ah, but at what cost? A sharp-edged blade can save or sever.
What will happen when time runs out and destiny lets swing the Blade of Truth?
What If...Justice delivered, the Healer's Blade at her feet, Adia finally faces a future filled with the hope of new beginnings.
But destiny has other plans, and the wheels of providence turn again, this time unearthing a past the People believed was long gone and buried.
While sickness and conflict threaten to take from Adia all she holds most dear, she must find the strength to guide and protect those she loves.
What If...the time has come to make Contact.
Will her compassionate act doom them all?
The People lived in peace for countless generations, hidden from the Outsiders—heartless and destructive humans who are unaware of the People's underground communities.
But the People’s existence is thrown into jeopardy when Adia, a young Healer, stumbles upon a horrific scene. Her enemies lay recently massacred—all except for one tiny, defenseless infant. Unable to deny her compassionate heart, she makes the fateful decision to break sacred law and take the infant back to her home to raise him as her own. When the Leader finds out what she has done, he takes her compassionate act as an affront to his authority—and a threat to the People's welfare.
Hated by her chieftain's mate for reasons she does not understand, Adia faces the biggest battle of her life as she struggles to make a place for the forbidden Outsider child.
She was prepared for him to be angry. She was prepared for him to punish her. But she was not prepared for Khon'Tor's Wrath.
