About the author

Leslie V. Knowles

I started writing when a co-worker challenged me to write my own book after I complained about a disappointing story I'd read. I was working as an interpretor-aide for the County School's Deaf Program at the time, and my story, about the reconciliation of the parents of a deaf child, evolved from that experience.
At the urging of friends and critique partners, I entered the manuscript into the Golden Heart Contest for Unpublished Writers. Silent Song finaled in the short contemporary category, and it eventually sold to Kensington Publishing. 
Between the regular changes of teaching assignments, and family obligations, I put writing on hold for several years. Once I retired, however, characters and story ideas began dancing in my head again, but now they danced to Regency music.
