About Leslie

   Multi-award-winning suspense author Leslie Marshman is (finally) putting her psychology degree to good use, getting inside the heads of her characters and figuring out what makes them tick. She writes novels that feature kick-ass heroines, the heroes who love them, and the bad guys who fear them.

   Leslie called Denver home until she married a Texan without reading the fine print.  Now she lives halfway between Houston and Galveston and has learned to embrace the humidity. Her household includes two miniature poodles named Harley and Davidson, and a three-legged box turtle named Stumpy. If she’s not at her computer making things up, you’ll probably find her camping at a lake, a fishing pole in one hand and a book in the other.

   Her debut novel, Goode Over Evil, was a 2018 Golden Heart finalist, 2018 Daphne du Maurier finalist, 2019 National Readers' Choice Award, 2020 Booksellers' Best Award, and winner of the 2018 Emily Best of the Best, 2017 Molly, 2017 Orange Rose, and 2017 Charlotte.

There is no door too big, handle too high, or knocker too heavy to keep me out if I really want in. I never, never, never give up.

I swung that knocker, I turned that handle, and I opened that big old door. I’m going to be a published author!

When I say I’ve been camping my whole life, I mean my WHOLE life.
