Leanne is a children’s book author specialising in helping kids with confidence, resilience, health and fitness. It is her dream to help as many children in the world as possible believe in their own power, and it’s these books that provide her with that opportunity. Check out the books page to find out more.
Leanne started blogging the day she turned 40, and she’s been blogging every day since. The title Deep Fried Fruit came to her like a bolt of lightning. Her head was telling her she was fit and fabulous at 40, but her body was telling her she was just plain fatigued and feeling somewhat deep fried. Is it possible to be fit and fabulous at 40, or does being middle aged cancel out the fit and fabulous tag line? She figured Deep Fried Fruit was the perfect analogy to sum up her life! It’s just like deep frying a banana. Is it good for your or bad for you? Does the deep frying cancel out the goodness of the fruit, or does the fruit over-ride the deep frying? Ah yes, that is the million dollar question. And it’s one she’s still trying to answer.
In addition to her children’s books and blogger adventures, Leanne runs a success consultancy to assist people achieve their goals and live happy and healthy lives.

Leanne is the proud mother of Tahlia and Darby, and step-mother to their big sister Chelsea. These kids are the highlight of Leanne’s life and the inspiration behind much of what she does. She is very active in their sports, schooling and playtime. She’s also very active in enforcing their chores and ensuring their teeth don’t rot. It was while wearing her Mum hat that she discovered she may actually be a control freak.
Derek is the very patient and fully supportive husband who often drives Leanne mad, but equally keeps her sane. Leanne is thankful for his unconditional love and faith in her endeavours. She is also quite fond of his cooking, and eternally grateful for the long hot baths he runs and the provision of champagne. She’s not overly fond of his snoring though and could probably do without finding his toe nail clippings on the bedside table. She does her best at keeping the house clean and ensuring the washing is done, and all the general day-to-day household management. While he does his best to keep the outdoors looking neat and tidy. Neither of them are masters in this regard but they get by. All-in-all they’re a match made in heaven.
Leanne is an active member of the Canberra cheer community having founded the Good Shepherd Primary School cheer team in 2008. She coached for four years across all age groups, before stepping aside this year to become the squads Principal Adviser. The Good Shepherd squad are dear to her heart and she’ll be forever part of their lifes.
Leanne is also actively committed to Sirens Cheerleaders as their Canberra Liaison. She is a member of the Sirens Parents squad and helps manage the face-to-face running of the team. She works closely with owner and manager, Rianna and her coaches, to ensure values and positive psychology principles run through the team.
She is also involved in general cheer liaison across the ACT. It just so happens her latest children’s book series and product line has a cheerleading theme.
As a warrior against all things middle-aged Leanne is keen to spread the good news … that being 40 is fantastic! She reckons it’s the best decade of your life. Mind you, she has quite a bit of help keeping things fabulous with a number of beauty products, loads of foundation, regular trips to the beauty salon, hair colours, acrylic nails and a personal trainer. Oh, and she’s a huge advocate for spray tans. In her eyes a barbeque chook looks a whole lot more appetising than a boiled one.
Despite her beauty regime, Leanne agrees that age is a mindset, and while the days keep on ticking over, she says she hasn’t aged a bit. In fact she’s decided to stay 40 forever.
