Leigh Marsden (Author)

About

Leigh Marsden was born in Taupo, New Zealand. During a fairly regular upbringing, her parents instilled in her a quiet knowledge that anything was possible in life with a bit of hard work.

After her high school years, which involved playing girls' rugby and excelling in English and Accounting, Leigh attended the University of Auckland, where she completed a Bachelor of Arts in English and Linguistics followed by a Masters in Speech and Language Therapy.

Since leaving university, Leigh has worked as a Speech and Language Therapist in Auckland, and when the travelling bug struck, as a stewardess onboard a superyacht in the Mediterranean and an innkeeper in Canada. She now lives with her husband and daughter in Geraldine, New Zealand. She is certain that being a writer is the best career choice of all.

Cloudstreet 25th Anniversary
This year marks the 25th anniversary of Cloudstreet, Tim Winton’s sprawling, comic epic about luck and love, fortitude and forgiveness, and the magic of the everyday. However it may never have been published had it not been for the stranger who chased after Tim with the manuscript he’d left it on a bus in Rome. Since it was first published by McPhee Gribble on 1 April 1991 Tim Winton’s award-winning novel has been reimagined as a successful play, a major TV mini-series and now an opera.
