Leia Shaw

I am the author of the Shadows of Destiny series. Each book promises action packed adventure; a healthy dose of magic; dark, tortured alpha males; smart, strong women; and hot, steamy romance.

I began my writing journey while I was stranded at the airport waiting for my delayed flight. I browsed the Border’s kiosk and grew frustrated that I couldn’t find the “it factor” — the perfect combination of alpha male-ness, ass-kickery, strong females, magic, and sex.

So I spent the next four hours on an airplane writing my first book on scraps of paper and an airsick bag (which thankfully I didn't need to use).

Now I spend too much time in my head, plotting evil villains and the hot men (and women) who ruthlessly kill them. I think far too much about fae politics, dragon power games, and how fast werewolves can change forms. But writing my paranormal romance series has given me a productive place to express those dark places in my mind.

I live in New England with my husband and two kids. Though I will go to my grave denying it, my husband insists I would be thrilled if he suddenly sprouted fangs.


You can read the first chapter of all my books on my website. I also often post excerpts here and on my goodreads blog. I love interacting with readers so don't hesitate to leave a comment on blog posts or email me directly. Happy reading!
