Leanne Dyck

'Rumours of gold, a secret lover, ghosts and other mysteries create a labyrinth of intrigue as Maynely A Mystery traces the lives of the story's animated eccentric characters. Author Leanne Dyck knows her craft, her audience, and her setting. Her novel provides a voyeuristic glimpse into human character and island life.' Terrill Welch

Maynely a Mystery


"My people, my nation has been coming here, from the beginning of time. This is a magical island," he smiled. "You were lost when you came here but now the island has found you. It will reveal many lessons to you: why you're here; who you are; where you came from. Don't be afraid to learn. These lessons will leave you stronger." Michael got up and strode away.

Leanne Dyck's writing has appeared in Flavours of Vancouver: dishes from around the World (2005) published by Douglas & McIntyre; Knit Together (2003, 2007); and Island Writer Magazine (2009).

Leanne has self-published an audio book NOVELTY YARN (2006); a learn-to-knit/pattern book YARN THERAPY (2007); and a mystery novel MAYNELY A MYSTERY (2009).

Most recently, Leanne has finished a young adult novel and a paranormal/psychological thriller. She hopes to work with a publishing house to bring these stories to the world. At the moment they are only available via the publisher or her website.

Authors' Den
Maynely A Mystery

'Peppered with subtle humour, surreal situations and entertaining characters.' Amber Harvey (Mayne Island Aliens)

'In Maynely A Mystery, her first novel, Leanne Dyck takes her skill at writing emotionally charged stores from nonfiction into fiction. Her writing about knitting has given her the skills needed to spin a yarn in this new genre.' Donna Druchunas (Ethnic Knitting Exploration)


  1. Thank you so much, Louise. Happy blogging.

  2. I must make a correction, however. My paranormal psychological thriller isn't currently available. It will soon be published by Decadent Publishing. As well, I'm still writing my YA.
