L. Leeper writes vignettes, short stories, and offbeat prescriptions for lifes everyday struggles. While she spends most of her time documenting the various oddities of life, she primarily enjoys exploring the shadow side of human nature. The shadow, a concept first coined by the psychologist Carl Jung, is the unconscious, primal aspect of our personality that the ego or conscious self attempts to suppress. Leeper enjoys examining that side of ourselves that we don’t like to admit to having; she believes that our shadow isn’t necessarily bad or good, it just is a taboo that we don’t understand and once revealed could lead to a more authentic life experience. The writer manages to take a seemingly obvious moment and unwrap it; revealing the mercurial nature of man, showing that the world is not as univocal as we sometimes expect and that there is always more to the story.
