A novel that spans six countries and 40 years, the story centers on an obsessive pair of lovers who cannot stay away from each other. Joey and Kat have had a messy relationship dating back to 1967. A random encounter in a small town in New Mexico takes them both aback. They part yet come back together repeatedly in Central America, Spain, Russia, the United Kingdom, and back to New Mexico. Looking back over the years, Joey reminisces with best friend, Paula on what could have been, while planning a final gathering of friends and family. "When No One's Looking makes me homesick for the simple, hardscrabble, poetic life that unfolds daily in the Ortiz Mountains of New Mexico-and for the raw, fearless emotions and journeys of its people. Joey's story is about the outer and inner landscapes that lead to love, to hate, and ultimately to wisdom." Carol Carpenter, Playwright. New York.show more

About Sarah L Leamy

Sarah Leamy was the younger boring little sister who suddenly left her English life and became the broke nomadic wanderer and writer. She finally settled in New Mexico in her late twenties although she's still taking extended road trips when she can. As the socially awkward and insecure Brit abroad, she lived first in Europe and then crossed the States and into Guatemala, performing, writing and working odd jobs as she explored new countries alone or with Daisy, her slightly grumpy Border Collie. Since then her stories, poems, essays and articles have been published in numerous online magazines, in newspapers, anthologies, and also in London, Madison, San Francisco and New Mexico. Her second novel won Best Fiction in the 2012 New Mexico/ Arizona Book Awards, and was a finalist with her third, Lucky Find. These days she's become more known as the odd Englishwoman with the dogs who lives in the mountains near Santa Fe, suddenly appearing with another novel in hand.show more
