About Me

Hi there!


So, what can I tell you about myself? 

Just the Facts, Ma'am....


I live in Portland, Maine, graduated from Trinity Washington University, and have experience working for a major publishing house in New York City, a law firm, and an independent record label specializing in contemporary American classical music.

The Good Stuff...

I’m an avid reader, a compulsive knitter, and a huge fan of all things “Harry Potter.” 


I love to travel and have had the privilege of visiting such diverse places as Moscow, Pompeii, Helsinki, London, Walt Disney World, and Graceland.  I recently added Cozumel, Mexico to the list during my first cruise.

I am constantly striving to bake the perfect chocolate chip cookie and I made my triumphant Broadway debut in 2010 (One night only—as the audience member picked to join the cast on stage during a performance of “Spamalot”).

If you’d like to hear more about me—about how I work, what I write, or the time I hit a tree while cross-country skiing, please feel free to Contact Me.

“…self-confidence and persistence…

Leslie has always displayed self-confidence and persistence in achieving her goals. She has turned ‘Where there’s a will, there’s a way!’ into an art form."

"I have found Leslie to be intelligent, reliable, creative, and resilient.  She is observant and also very funny!"
