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 'em, and the bad guys who fear 'em.


   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.

   She is a Daphne du Maurier finalist, Golden Heart finalist, and winner of the National Readers' Choice Award, the Booksellers' Best Award, the Emily and Emily Best of the Best, the Molly, the Orange Rose and the Charlotte, and the Carolyn Readers Choice Award.

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 a published author!

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