Leigh Michaels is the pseudonym used by LeAnn Lemberger (b. July 27 in Iowa, United States), a popular United States writer of over 85 romance novels. She published her novels in Harlequin Enterprises Ltd since 1984. She also teaches romance writing.


Michaels was born in Iowa, United States. She received a "Bachelor of Arts" in journalism from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa, after three years of study and maintained a 3.93 grade-point average. She received the "Robert Bliss Award" as top-ranking senior in the School of Journalism and Mass Communication, and won a national "William Randolph Hearst Award" for feature-writing as an undergraduate.

When Leigh was very young she read romance novels, and when she was fifteen, she wrote her first romance novel and burned it. She burned five more complete manuscripts before submitting one to a publisher. The first submission was accepted by Harlequin, the only publisher to look at it, and was published in 1984.

She married to Michael W. Lemberger, an artist-photographer.
