Now I Have Two Leigh's

I thought Serpent's Treasure fans would enjoy this picture. The character Leigh was named after my 3rd great-grandfather. (In truth I just thought it was a cool name.) 

At the time of the writing of The Ancestral Key, I actually did not know much about my ancestor or what he looked like.

Since publication, I have learned that he was actually a British Army or Navy Officer (still unclear on some of the details) and I have a photo of him. He doesn't look anything like I imagined Leigh would.

I'm perfectly fine with that because Leigh Lyons is an entirely different individual. Hope you enjoy this little tidbit.
