Thanks for stopping by!


I love writing mysteries and getting kids exciting about reading. If you’d like to delve into my writing journey and spy pictures of my office, please click CLUES ABOUT LESLIE.

If you’re a teacher or librarian, I’d love to visit your school in person or virtually. Click
FOR TEACHERS for details on my writing workshops for kids.

If you’re a writer, I want to encourage you! Click any of the links under the For Writers tab for
great info about writing. I also provide CRITIQUES and EDITING—because I know how important quality input is on the road to publication.

Happy Reading, Writing, and Investigating!


Would your writing for kids benefit from coaching and/or editing in 2023? Maybe I can help! 

Latest Project

I'm finalizing edits to my middle grade novel, Moon Girl, and will send it to my agent soon for consideration.
