Welcome to my website, where you can learn about all things Lesléa: books I write, presentations I offer, mentoring services, and more!

I started my literary career by publishing poems in Seventeen magazine when I was a teenager and I never looked back. Some of my best known titles are: October Mourning: A Song for Matthew Shepard; A Letter to Harvey Milk; Hachiko Waits; Sparkle Boy; and of course, Heather Has Two Mommies.

Some other things to know about me: I have a green belt in Shuri Ryu Karate; I can turn a canoe on a dime; my favorite color is leopard print; I am (mildly) obsessed with shoes; and I never met a piece of dark chocolate I didn’t like! Thank you for visiting my website.
