About Leslie

leslie3jpgLeslie’s earliest memories include learning to read her Tiny Golden Books (which she still owns) and has always enjoyed escaping into stories, whether reading or writing them. Now she puts her psychology degree to good use, getting inside the heads of her characters and figuring out what makes them tick.

A member of all three Houston area chapters of Romance Writers of America and the online Kiss of Death chapter, she is newsletter editor for the Houston Bay Area chapter as well as their contest coordinator for the popular Judge A Book By Its Cover contest.  Her manuscript Goode Over Evil has won the 2017 Molly in Romantic Suspense, first place in the 2017 Orange Rose in Romantic Suspense and the 2017 Charlotte for first place overall in the Orange Rose. Her publishing credits include short stories.

Leslie called Denver home until she married a Texan without reading the fine print.  She now resides halfway between Houston and Galveston and has learned to embrace the humidity. If she’s not at her computer making things up, you’ll probably find her camping at a lake, a fishing pole in one hand and a book in the other.
