About Leslie


Leslie has always enjoyed escaping into stories, whether reading or writing them. Now she puts her psychology degree from University of Denver 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 as well as Kiss of Death and the Golden Network, she is newsletter editor for the Houston Bay Area chapter as well as contest coordinator for their popular Judge A Book By Its Cover contest.

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.

Her manuscript Goode Over Evil is a 2018 Golden Heart finalist; won First Place in the 2018 Emily in Romantic Suspense; won the 2018 Emily Best of the Best; took First Place in the 2017 Molly in Romantic Suspense; won First Place in the 2017 Orange Rose in Romantic Suspense; won the 2017 Charlotte for First Place Overall in the Orange Rose and took second place in the 2018 Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Mystery/Suspense – Single Title.
