PHOENIX, Feb. 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- After moving to Phoenix the day before her kids started a new school, Leah Downing experienced what some forty somethings do after relocating...a "first-world problems" breakdown. It was this shakeup that prompted her to start writing as a form of expressive therapy. While juggling kids and a full-time position with the government, her "therapy" morphed into a gigantic Word.doc and a storyboard that took over her dining room table.
Her first book, Catch a Falling Star, (published in March 2016) ranked #1 in four categories on Amazon and captured the winning spot for Cross Genre Fiction in the prestigious Beverly Hills Book Awards®. Downing quit her job and The Shooting Stars Series was born.
When reviewers and bloggers got ahold of the ARCs (Advanced Reader Copies) for Downing's sophomore novel, The Path of Least Resistance, unfiltered praise poured in.
"This is a series that I am beyond excited about and cannot wait to see what's next…." —Jen Thomason, Dandelions Inspired, Reading and Reviewing Amazing Books!
The Path of Least Resistance shot to #1 Bestseller in five categories across Amazon during the first hour it went live February 7, 2017. Heralded for her rare talent of spinning a dramatic Hollywood romance set against the veiled world of security clearances, Downing knew she was onto something unique. And completely addictive.
Downing has completed drafts of the next four books, and she won't keep her fans waiting too long. Book Three, The Path of Most Resistance, launches November 10, 2017 in honor of the Marine Corps birthday.
"My mother is the only person who knows what happens at the end of the series," Downing said in a recent interview.
Both #1 Bestselling novels: Catch a Falling Star and The Path of Least Resistance are available in paperback or e-book on Amazon. Downing can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
