Leslie's Bio:

Throughout my life I’ve dreamed of being a writer. The thread that has woven between the pages of my life is my love for the written word. Stories and characters have always played in my head waiting for the day they could bust out and have a life of their own.

After a career as a photojournalist, I decided I needed a change and returned to school where I received a Master of Arts in Human Services specializing in counseling. While employed in various mental health clinics, the idea for a book took root and has resulted in my first fiction novel, The Headshrinker’s Brigade, published by Treaty Oak Publishers. This book recently won the 2019 Texas Authors Book Award Contest for general fiction.

Born and raised in Texas I currently live in a small town in the Texas Hill Country with my husband, my precocious teenage daughter, and three terribly spoiled dogs. If you would like to contact me, I would love to hear from you. You can find me at: leslieanntourishcom
