| After living in Los Angeles for seven years and working in the film and music industries, LeAnne Kline began to pursue writing full-time at the Pennsylvania State University. A candidate for the Master of Fine Arts degree in Creative Writing (fiction), she studies with Josip Novakovich (Infidelities: Stories of War and Lust, Fiction Writer's Workshop), William J. Cobb (Goodnight Texas), Charlotte Holmes (Gifts and other Stories) and Cecil Giscombe (Giscome Road). The English Department awarded her an assistantship and full-tuition waiver for the program. She has also been actively publishing while at Penn State, and several magazines and journals have published her poetry. Ms. Kline has also developed a series of non-fiction travel articles entitled "Pennsylvania by Request," which explore the strange quirky locations only local Pennsylvanians know about. In addition, Ms. Kline's second novel,Seven Minutes Past Saturday (contemporary fiction)-is halfway complete; it reveals the dark undercurrents in a small town in the mountains of Pennsylvania.
