Lies That Bind: Emma's Story

By Leigh Michaels

New adult fiction | Paperback, eBook


Ever since that day in grade school, Emma Parker and Kendall Preston have been best friends, with a mutual need to protect each other from harm. But when a secret from their past becomes a secret in their present, a devastating tragedy threatens to tear apart a relationship that they’ve both always believed was bulletproof. Left to pick up the broken pieces by herself, Emma learns that to survive the aftermath, all she has to do is drown the resulting anguish. The only problem is that her coping mechanism might cost her everything. But even if it does, all she wants back is her best friend. Lies That Bind: Emma’s Story helps shed light on the all-too-common occurrence of abuse by someone familiar, and the PTSD that follows trauma.



Leigh has had a passion for children and teens since she was a young girl, and has been writing stories since she was six years old. Combining these two loves came naturally as a teen when she began writing short stories and poetry for teens. Leigh has a Bachelor of Arts in English from the University of Wisconsin, and has had several poems published in anthologies. "Lies That Bind: Emma's Story" is Leigh’s third literary publication. Leigh lives in Wisconsin with her husband and children, where as a family they pour their passion for children into the foster care system as licensed foster parents. Leigh has five children, whom she loves spending time with and learning from on a daily basis. When she isn’t writing, she enjoys playing the piano and occasionally composes simple arrangements and accompaniments. She loves to read almost as much as she loves to write; she also enjoys cooking and baking and is an amateur runner. Leigh is currently working on two Young Adult novels for publication.
