Lesley

I love the ordinary moments. I celebrate everyday things.

They are too often lost in the race for something grand. I hold dear our humdrum routines. These accumulating hours make up our lifetimes and when we remember, it is always the simplest of pleasures that make us happy. These are the memories I create in my books.

Although born and raised in Montreal a hundred years ago, I live in rural Cape Breton with my retired husband and elderly cat. Our kids left long ago. I got into writing as a way to avoid housework, and I’ve been on a diet for sixty-years with no success. I love books and animals and anyone who will rub my feet.
