Leah Browning
Leah Browning has worked as a freelance writer and editor since 1995.  She is the
author of
Babysitting Basics and Babysitting Rules, two books in a six-volume series for
pre-teens and teens.  The complete set, published by
Capstone Press in 2006, also
includes
Babysitting Activities and Babysitting Skills by Wendy Ann Mattox and
Babysitting Safety and Babysitting Jobs by Barbara Mehlman.  Browning is also the
author of
Sleepovers (from the "10 Things You Need to Know About" series), published
by Capstone in 2008.  

Her first chapbook,
Making Love to the Same Man for Fifteen Years, was released by Big
Table Publishing in 2009 (cover photograph by Jimmy Kang).  Browning's second
chapbook,
Picking Cherries in the Española Valley, was published by Dancing Girl
Press in 2010 (cover art by
Sarah Browning).  In a review in Off the Coast, M.J. Iuppa said
that "in both chapbooks, Browning wrestles with time, creating a landscape that doesn't
follow a linear progression, but moves like a gyroscope (always circling back onto itself),
making memory a mirror."  Iuppa's full review is available in print and
online in the Winter
2011 issue of
Off the Coast.  

Browning's third chapbook,
In the Chair Museum, was published by Dancing Girl Press
in 2013.  Cover art for
In the Chair Museum was also provided by Sarah Browning.  Five
poems from the collection—“The Night He Broke His Collarbone,” “In the Chair
Museum,” “Halfway Through the Biography of Anne Sexton,” “Almost a Year After His
Suicide,” and “Early Morning”—were reprinted in
The Wardrobe's “Best Dressed” feature
for the week of April 28-May 2, 2014.  Another poem, "Any Day Now," is available on a
printable broadside with original artwork by Sarah Browning.

Five poems from

"Any Day Now," "There's Nothing," "Almost a Year After His Suicide," "Learning to Play
Piano at Thirty," and Cottage"—were reprinted with audio recordings by Leah Browning

featuring the song "Mesmerism" by Masonik Arts and the poem "There's Nothing,"

OperaDelaware Studios in Wilmington,
Delaware, for the
City Theater Company's 10-Minute Play Festival, and a full staged
reading of a one-act was performed at Rainbow Books and Music in Newark, Delaware.  
Her most recent one-act play,
Starlight and Turnips, was read at the Domino Theatre in
Kingston, Ontario, on May 22, 2007.      

In addition to writing, Browning serves as editor of the
Apple Valley Review, an online
literary journal established in 2005.  The journal is published twice annually, in the
spring and fall.  Each issue features a collection of poetry, short fiction, and essays.
