Welcome to my blog! 

My name is Leslie Barrett and I fancy myself a writer. I write children's picture books, young adult fiction that crosses over into adult fiction and adult fiction that crosses over into young adult fiction, poetry, and a variety of personal snippets about my life, my daughter's life, and life in general.

I live in Michigan with a combination of 5 other creatures. Some are human and some are feline. I'm originally from Ohio and, I have to say, my heart still lives in Cleveland most days.

In addition to writing, I am a junker. I love to buy low and sell high the various items I pick up from flea markets, yard sales, and dumpsters. And... I'm a licensed Zumba instructor. And... I'm getting my Event Planning certification because I'd also like to plan fundraising events for nonprofits, organize professional conferences, and maybe coordinate a random wedding or two. And... I think that about covers it.

Thank you for joining me here. I hope you'll feel at home.
