Leah’s favourite things are talking about herself in the third person, pasta and exacting petty revenge. Her current plans are becoming a writer for a live-action comedy, animated or documentary tv series and/or finally perfecting fluffy scrambled eggs. She has special interests in humour writing and travel, beauty and lifestyle journalism. You can sometimes catch her performing standup at places where you really just wanted to buy a muffin.
It’s LAY-A, like princess.
