Hey there. Introductions are always weird online, aren’t they? Never mind. You obviously came here to find out a little more about me. Where to start…
My name is Leia Marie Gose, and I am Métis Canadian-American. I am an author and artist currently living in the mountains of Colorado.
In nearly 35 years on the planet, I have lived a life of travel and adventure thanks to my military upbringing and some less than responsible parenting. Okay, okay. I was basically raised by wolves, but I survived and eventually thrived.
When I was ready to finally be still (or as still as a nomad can be), I chose to settle my family on a small farm with two horses, three dogs, three cats and a giant rabbit.
To the chagrin and annoyance of some, I always wanted to be two things: an artist and a writer, so it makes me very happy to sincerely say I am both. I grew up to be the exactly what I wanted to be, complete with the bulldog and Jeep.
As an artist, I’ve worked with every medium possible from ceramics to painting, music, television and film, photography, and of course, graphic design. I love it all, but in the last few years, I’ve been focused on graphic art and web design. L.M. Gose Arts has been designing everything from Show Posters to business logos. The future excites me.
As a writer, I’ve written poetry, songs, short stories, but the pièce de résistance are my books: The Children of Lilith Series. The series begins low fantasy but quickly turns into a dark epic fantasy space opera. The first book Ascend was published in July 2019 with two others (Descend, Transcend) following since. The fourth book, Gravesend, will be released on Halloween 2022.
I am actively working on Contend, Book Five in the Children of Lilith Series, which is planned for a 2024 release. There is also a stand-alone novel in the works titled The Spare’s Heir.
I have always loved mythology and cultures. Growing up in the military allowed me to explore many places and meet strangers who became friends all over the world. My world has always been colorful and full of flavor. I wanted to share all of that within my books.
It is my goal to create a universe so richly diverse and wonderfully accepting of differences. Each installment aims to become more inclusive with respectful representation. I believe all people are deserving of respect and dignity. Black Lives do Matter. Trans Rights are Human Rights. Love is love. We are truly all in this together.
So we have to use our voices and stand for what’s right against what is wrong. Be the good you wish to see in the world, live with love and kindness… Most importantly, grow with an open heart and an open mind. It’s the only way to a better future for all of humanity.
