Shan Leah's debut literary thriller, Thieves, Beasts & Men, was an award-winning Finalist in the 2021 American Fiction Awards for Best New Fiction, a Finalist for the 2021 Shelf Unbound Award for Best Fiction, and is currently longlisted for the CIBA (Chanticleer International Book Award) Somerset Prize for Best Literary and Contemporary Fiction 2021.


She's also a fine artist and freelance photographer, and her work has been published in numerous books and magazines, including Black & White Magazine, Black+White Photography Magazine, Studio Visit Magazine, Emboss Magazine, Private Residences North America, At Home Magazine, and three editions of fine art compilation books by Out Of Step Books. Her work was also recognized as a grantee of the 2017 Impact Returns Grant.

Shan is a lover/writer of dark literary fiction. Surrounded by an endless supply of pens, papers, paints, and clay, she grew up in the Florida Keys and was taught proper wheel-throwing techniques before mastering her shoelaces. She currently lives in Dunedin, Fl, with her brilliant kid and small herd of cats. 


She finds beauty dreadfully boring. 

Shan is represented by Nicki Richesin at Dunow, Carlson & Lerner Literary Agency
