Dead Man's Legacy, the second book in the Petra Minx series of adventure thrillers, was launched yesterday at Buy-The-Book, in Nassau, Bahamas, which is where the story begins and ends. Bahamians are avid readers and supporters of new authors.
The first book in the series, The Politician's Daughter, takes Petra undercover to the Mediterranean on the trail of a missing girl. It was published in 2011 by Rudling House.
Other books by Marion include:
Rosie Aims High, A Rosie Raccoon story for children, based on an event that occurred in Toronto, Canada, in May 1983 (Kindle e-book) and
An adult poetry collection entitled To Love Sex and Cunning Linguistics (Kindle e-book)
Marion Leigh grew up in Birmingham, England, a distinction she is delighted to share with authors Lee Child, Jonathan Coe and the great J.R.R. Tolkien. After graduating in Modern Languages from the University of Oxford, she spent a year doing volunteer work in Indonesia then worked as a teacher in London. Later, she moved to Canada where she established and ran a successful financial and legal translation company. Never a good skier, she now likes to spend the winter in warmer climes, including Spain and the Bahamas.
Marion draws on her travel experiences on five continents to add authenticity and local colour to her writing. Boating is also a recurrent theme, reflecting her passion for the water.
