Open Me


“Leanne had it all—the relationship, the career, the dream home and lifestyle—what more could she want? But in spite of ‘having it all,’ her heart was longing for something else. Tormented and guilt-ridden by the thought of hurting loved ones, terrified of other people’s judgement, what could she do? 

Open Me tells the story of how Leanne listened to her heart, followed her inner truth, and found her way—to freedom.”

Open Me, released in 2017, tells my personal story of going from fear to freedom. It’s a story of trust—busting through self-doubt—and the courage to follow one’s heart.


But it’s not just my life that has changed as a result of writing this book.


Others have reported making life-altering changes after reading the book.  My book provides an opportunity for you to see your own life through a different lens—and to follow me on the pages of Open Me through the pains, the struggles, and the leaps of faith I experienced on my journey.


The freedom, happiness and confidence I’ve found is what I wish for everyone to take away after reading my book—even if it’s just one passage that makes all the difference to you.

Book reviews

“Open Me is a brave, honest, touching and wildly adventurous true story. Leanne emerges from each page as a spiritual pied-piper, teaching us how to ask and listen, trust and let go.”—Darlene Stewart, Executive Director, Groups & Events, Cineplex

“Poignant, funny and inspiring, Open Me is a revealing and insightful memoir about finding the courage to choose and the wisdom to surrender.”—Catherine Cooper, author, White Elephant

A passage from my book:

“It’s not a place that attracts me right now,” I said, and immediately I felt stronger inside and I knew I had made the right choice.

In London, Aaron walked me to the bus station and showed me the bus I needed to catch. He took care of me right to the last moment.

We hugged and held each other.

When we pulled apart and said good-bye, I looked up into his face, and from the very depths of my heart I said, “Thank you,” as tears welled in my eyes.

I was so grateful that he had been there on the first part of my journey.

He had provided so much support, more than he would ever know.

“Let me know if you are thinking of Greece after your conference,” he said.

I nodded but I knew I wouldn’t.

As one journey ended, the next one was about to begin.
