About The Book
Title: DAUGHTER 4254
Author: Leigh Statham
Pub. Date: December 5, 2017
Publisher: Owl Hollow Press
Formats: Paperback, eBook
Daughter4254 used to think life in a community where art, music and names are outlawed would suffocate her creative spirit. Now that she’s rotting in a prison cell, she’s not sure her dying mother made the right choice when she entrusted her with the secrets of rebellion. Prison has given her plenty of time to relive every mistake and lose all hope.
Then she meets Thomas, a fellow inmate, who tells her stories of the mythical mountain colonies where people have names and the arts thrive. Together they plot an escape, knowing if they fail, they will die. Or worse, their consciousness will be taken by the MindWipe, leaving their bodies free for the government to use. When nothing goes as planned, Daughter4254 must choose between using her mother’s secret to better the world she hates, or following Thomas to the quiet life of freedom she has always craved.
Leigh Statham was raised in the wilds of rural Idaho but found her heart in New York City. She worked at many interesting jobs before settling in as a mother and writer.
She now resides in North Carolina with her husband, four children, eight chickens, a fluffy dog, and two suspected serial killer cats.
Leigh is currently working on an MFA, has written countless short stories, and is the author of lots of mediocre poetry. She is also the winner of the 2016 Southeast Review Narrative Nonfiction Prize for her short story “The Ditch Bank and the Fenceline.”

1. What is on your nightstand?
The Empty Grave, Book 5 of the Lockwood and Co. series by Jonathan Stroud. I’m treasuring it chapter by chapter very slowly. Can’t believe it’s the end!
2. What author would you totally fan?
If it had to be a living author, I’d pick Lowis Lowry. I’m a huge fan of The Giver series and pretty much everything she’s written. If I could visit a dead author it would have to be Lucy Maude Montgomery. I love all of her books, especially Anne of Green Gables, and she had such an interesting life.
3. What makes you cringe?
People who chew with their mouths open. BLEH!
4. Do you obsessively plot out each point or just go with the flow?
I’m definitely a go with the flow kinda girl. Sometimes my characters take over and that’s when it gets really fun.
5. Is there a word you love to use?
When I go back to edit, I find myself using the weirdest words over and over again. Lately it’s been “Yah” instead of “Yes” or “so.” Super boring. I know. Whenever I can, I try to work in a fun word in conversation. Like the word “kismet” or “serendipity” they mean “meant to be” and they just sound so good rolling off the tongue. It’s fun to have the perfect word for the perfect situation.
