Hi, I’m Leanne Margaret
I’m a writer, teacher, dancer and self-published author of two mind/body/spirit books. I’m a member of Writers Victoria, and a graduate of The Australian Writers’ Centre. Since 2012, I’ve studied creative writing, copy and content writing, fiction structure and grammar, and memoir writing.
During a difficult stage of my early life, I began exploring meditation and spirituality. Metaphysics and divination became the theme linking my early writing and teaching work, including meditation, tarot and psychic development. I began teaching belly dance back in 2001, eventually creating my own Majickal style in 2008; which I continue to teach today.
These are my Majickal Creations:
My drive to write is sourced from a quietly held, but life-long belief that it is my purpose to do so. Although my early work consisted mainly of poetry, journaling, workshops and business copy, I really wanted to write books. I kept quiet about it for years, except to my closest confidants. For reasons I didn’t quite understand, I knew that I had to live half of my life first.
Then, just like in childhood, a trauma took place that brought the next stage of my life into focus. I emerged from the rubble of my old life in 2014, and began creating my first book The Love of the Universe, published in 2017. In 2019 I followed it with Multidimensional Meditation.
Mostly, I’m inspired by a desire to support, encourage, identify with, and share opportunities with others. My writing and teaching work gently empowers others to guide themselves based on principles of love, creativity and personal growth.
Once I’m at my computer keyboard with a manuscript open, I know I’m in my sweet spot. There’s no place I belong more. I also love good coffee, excellent food, dancing to ecstatic music, and walking anywhere new. I enjoy a quiet, contemplative life and regular re-charging in nature, particularly with the trees and rivers.
Currently, my memoir is in the developmental stages, but my creative brain also sparkles with multiple ideas. I hope the writing world can hold an author of multiple genres.
