FACELIFT, a new novel by Leanna Ellis

B&H Publishing

A ‘can do’ kind of woman runs her own business, raises her teenage daughter, and takes care of her ex-mother-in-law after a botched facelift. But Kaye learns a facelift is more than skin deep. Joy is more than tacking on a happy face. It's relying on her sovereign God who has a plan for her life.

Read an excerpt from Facelift here:


Leanna Ellis
“I grew up watching Gene Kelly movies. My backyard became a stage for my own musicals. Hence, the start of my own ‘That’s Entertainment!’ I not only loved to dance, but I began to write as well during these elementary years. My fourth grade teacher made me write a poem. I wrote about my dog, Sport. The poem was horrible. It was even worse having to read it to the class. So began my hatred of poetry. (I have since learned to love it, just not write it.) In sixth grade, my teacher introduced me to Edgar Allan Poe. I wrote a story, a dark Poe-esque type tale about murder and mayhem, and fell in love with writing. It, like choreography, tapped into my soul and unleashed my creativity like nothing else.”

Leanna Ellis & husband
“For about three years, I wrote with a collaborator, but because I had so many ideas I began to write more stories on my own. I suffered numerous rejections. Deservedly so. But I was growing as a writer and learning. I went to as many conferences as I could manage. During that time, I met my future husband, fell in love and became engaged. I also began to final in contests and then actually began to win! The contests helped me get noticed by editors and agents. In March, the year Braveheart won the Best Picture Oscar, Victor/Victoria opened on Broadway and O.J.’s attorney said, “If the glove doesn’t fit, you must acquit,” I sold my first book. It was my Cinderella year. I sold my book, got married and won RWA’s Golden Heart Award in Hawaii.”
