BIOGRAPHY

Leanna Floyd has a doctorate in clinical psychology, and her love for helping others is at the forefront of her work. She has worked firsthand with murderers, psychopaths, narcissists, and borderlines while working in a Florida prison. In this setting, she explored the minds of notorious killers and obtained an insider’s view of their secrets as they recounted their darkest hours. It is these experiences in the prison setting that influenced her first novel, “Over the Borderline.” Leanna lives in the Sunshine State, Florida, with her husband, a retired major league baseball player (Gavin Floyd), and their two young boys. She spends her spare time event planning for friends and family, pursuing her love for photography, traveling, philanthropy, and writing.

      • Yes, I read most of my book reviews. There are so many factors that can influence others' opinions of my book, and I try to consider those factors when reading their reviews. For every good review, I’m so grateful and often times elated that someone enjoyed my writing. When I write a book, I'm putting my mind out there for the world to judge, which can be terrifying. So, when a good review comes in, it’s so special to me since I poured my heart and mind into the book. The bad reviews always feel like a blow to my gut, but I take the review a step further, and I wonder what was going on in their lives that could have affected their opinions (I’m sure my degree in clinical psychology comes into play here!), and I try to find value in their criticism. I choose to find the “good” in their bad reviews. It’s not always an easy task, but for me, I always want to choose to find the silver lining in the bad reviews.

        As an author, I will forever be grateful for every person who reads my book and takes the time to review it.

      • I’ve always loved to write. For me, writing has always been an outlet to express my inner world. My love for writing became the central focus of my life when I was in the third grade. I can remember plucking away at my parents’ keyboard staring at the jumbo monitor wide eyed and wrapped up in my first story that would be submitted in a local writing contest. The contest was titled “My favorite older person.” I won third in the state and received a $50 savings bond, and from that moment a new passion was lite within me. I’ll never forget the pride and joy on my grandmother’s face. Even at a young age, I saw the impact that writing could not just on me but on others too.

      • My dream goal that I want to achieve before I die has nothing to do with writing, but it has everything to do with love. My dream would be to have the opportunity to mentor others in need and to let every individual know that they’re worthy of love and that they were created for a purpose. I see the beauty in brokenness, and I believe it’s a common link amongst most individuals. There’s usually some aspect of another’s life that has elements of rejection, criticism, and/rejection, and my dream is to reach those individuals and to remind them of just how valuable they are and that the lies of their past don’t define them.
