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 .

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!


And if it’s not soon enough…you can follow me HERE.
