I am Leesa Cross-Smith. A brown-eyed Kentucky girl & a writer of fictions. INFJ, a highly sensitive person, an empath. My debut short story collection EVERY KISS A WAR (Mojave River Press) will be released early 2014. Sometimes I write about makeup and baseball and books and life and stuff over at LeesaCrossSmith.com & there's a detailed list of my work over here. I'm also co-founder and editor over at WhiskeyPaper. I write reviews for The Review Review & Female Gaze Review & some other places too. I also write Sons of Anarchy reviews over here.
