Welcome! They call me the beetle lady, but my name is Maya G. Leonard. I'm an award winning, bestselling, children's author who loves invertebrates, is mad about trains and an #Author4Oceans.

You'll find videos, podcasts about writing, teaching resources, reviews and news about my books, all the information you need to write me a letter, book a school visit or come to one of my public events. I even have a book blog if you want to know what I'm reading!

Sign up for a bimonthly newsletter with news of events, writing workshops, articles, new books, gratuitous pictures of beetles, exclusives, limited edition thing-a-me-bobs and more...
