About Leigh

Leigh Hutton is a former News Ltd journalist and champion dirt bike racer and horse show jumper. She was born and raised in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains near Calgary, Alberta, Canada, and lives with her husband and three children on a rural property in southeast Queensland, Australia. When she isn’t wrangling the kids, swilling coffee, or writing, she loves to read, watch good TV and movies, shop, hit the beach, ride her motorbike and daydream about gorgeous horses. Her family spell race horses at their property so visiting them and getting to know each one is also a favourite pastime of her and her children. She started writing REV GIRL after the birth of her first child, and is ecstatic to be drawing on her experiences to bring you the exciting novels of The Go Girls Chronicles . . .
