Author has written 13 stories for Gossip Girl, Vampire Diaries, and Castle.

My name is Leighton, and I spend a hell of a lot of time procrastinating. This is me, this is who I am.

I try very hard to get chapters out in diligent times, but sometimes life hits and I can't control it. Please understand this; I'm not here to make everyone's life miserable. And sometimes, I get writer's block and I can't write.

Either way, I hope you enjoy my writing. Thank you.
