Prudence MacLeod in her natural state. 😉

Ordinary people are capable of remarkable feats given the right set of circumstances and these days, maybe more than ever, we all need more everyday heros.  

The stories I love best are ones in which I could see at least a part of myself and that is actually the starting point of many of my stories.  I am an observer.  I love to people watch!  I can’t help but notice what makes an ordinary person stand out to me and I can’t resist building stories around those unique character sketches.

The stories I least like are ones where the “hero” remains tormented and without resolution even at the end of a book.  If I wanted reality, I’d have watched TV.  Good fiction should entertain, and have a momentum of its own that carries rather than drags the reader along.  My stories are intended to transport the reader away from the stresses of their day-to-day lives, and to sweep them up into a different world where people much like themselves overcome challenges and have remarkable adventures.

My goal is to write stories that inspire people to be their own everyday hero; to imagine new possibilities for themselves and perhaps change the course of their own story.  I invite you to join me on the adventure.


This is the unofficial line:  When I’m not writing, and am awaiting the arrival of my next story, you might find me in Blades Edge as I’m an avid World of Warcraft player.  I am also an avid chess player, not a great one, but an avid one. I also build, bake, knit,  play with my critters and sometimes read other people’s stories too!

This is how I want you to think I spend my days:

Lastly, what does the well dressed author wear on her feet during a cold winter’s day?

Author Prudence MacLeod Slippers

Yep, hand knit wool slippers in sandals. We’ll get back to heels as soon as spring arrives. Yes, I did knit them myself.
