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. I am a Métis Canadian-American artist living in the mountains of Colorado with my family on a small farm complete with two horses, three dogs, two cats and a giant rabbit.
In 35 years on the planet, I have lived a life of travel and adventure. I love roadtrips across Canada and the US to explore my roots, but my favorite adventures include visiting other countries where I try to have the fully immersive cultural experience. I credit my military upbringing for my desire to experience and learn all I can about the world we live in. I am lucky enough to be able to take a trip every now and then even still.
My love of world travel nourished my love of the global cultural mythology. Since my own world has always been richly colorful and full of flavor, I decided to ensure that diversity was represented within my books. It is my goal to create a universe so magnificently accepting with as much respectful representation as I possibly can. I believe a world is made better and more beautiful because of our differences, and we must use our voices to stand for what is right. I can only hope to continue to grow as a person and an artist as I work to create. After all, it is the best we can do: grow with an open heart and mind.
I've written and published four books in my Children of Lilith Series. The series debuted with Ascend in Summer of 2019 as a dark low fantasy with inclusive and diverse characters. It quickly evolves into an epic fantasy space opera with the sequels (Descend, Transcend, Gravesend). The series is has a planned nine book arc, continuing with the next novel (Contend)in 2024. There are also a couple stand-alone novels in the beginning stages of development including a contemporary and a sci-fi.
I love to volunteer within my community, especially as a youth soccer coach. Over the years I've coached nine seasons, including 2022, where my little footballers had a winning season. Hopefully I will continue to coach for as long as I'm able. I've also started playing hockey, joining the local women's team. I love staying active and challenging myself.
I am blessed to live as an artist. Being able to focus on my passions and pursuits now is a gift, especially given how much of my life was focused on surviving trauma. Today I am living as full a life I possibly can, complete with a bulldog and the Jeep I always wanted.
