Hello Everyone, my name is Leslie, and this is my first post.
I thought I would start out by introducing myself and telling you why I am here. Yes … you guessed it! I am a baby author (working on my own book) with big dreams and trying to learn the “in’s and out’s” of the business. Blogging, posting, writing, reviewing (I get that) and publishing. I have only just learned how to publish a few of the things I’ve written onto www.wattpad.com .
So who am I besides someone full of admiration for the Indie author and grateful for the company of the group of talented individuals I have come into contact with in this community?
Well, I am a mother and stepmother of three. I have been married 13 years to a great guy. I have 6 grandchildren. Yet I am still very young at heart! My career was in capital case appellate prosecution. Fancy- Schmansy for a Government Legal Assistant. I researched, typed, proofread and edited legal briefs in cases that border on the paranormal! However, I gave that up when circumstances in my life changed and I had to help raise grandchildren. When the kiddies were old enough, I needed to work (a housewife I am not). So … I studied and got a degree from GIA in jewelry, and worked for a jewelry repair shop. A hobby job, if you will.
But I always wanted to write.
I always wanted to be involved in the writing community.
“Why?” you ask? Because I had authors in the family I was proud of and wanted to follow in their footsteps. For those that are curious, I am the niece of David and Leigh Eddings, of “The Belgariad” series; “The Mallorean” series; “The Elenium” series; and the list goes on and on. They wrote in the Sci-Fi/Fantasy genre. They are both gone now, but their books are still popular. You can still find them on Amazon HERE and in the bookstores, as well. I still remember getting advanced copies to read for them, signed, and thinking…’THIS is what I want to do. I want to fill my life with magic and adventure and share it with everyone.’
So I hope you will all enjoy my reviews and my posts and will be patient with the newbie while she learns. I want to talk about the books I read and the television series’ I love and get your feedback also!
Last but certainly not least, I want to thank Patti Roberts for believing in me and encouraging me! She is truly brilliant. I adore everything about her, from her personality and compassion to her phenomenal writing!
SEE YOU SOON !!
And if it’s not soon enough…you can follow me HERE.
