About Lea

From the time Lea Scott picked up her first crayon, creative writing has been one of her lifelong passions. Her mother’s cupboards are filled with self-illustrated books and stories penned from an early age. Other random life skills she has gained along the way include the ability to bait her own fishhook and shoot with a deadly aim…

Lea resides in the Sunshine Coast hinterland overlooking the magical Glasshouse Mountains with her husband and two 'city' dogs.


Lea holds a PhD in creative writing and qualifications in arts and tertiary education. She lectures in creative writing and has facilitated workshops for writers organisations, festivals and conferences nationally and internationally . She also acts as a writing mentor for emerging writers and NDIS clients. 

Lea is available for speaking engagements, workshops and mentoring.
