Despite a useless Fine Arts degree, Leslie M. Rollins has spent much of her career in the world of Direct Marketing and Graphic Design. Her writing was done on the side, in the car, in bathrooms—yes, no keyboards! With the help of sadistic writers' groups, she learned to hone her craft. The muse drove her mad. A great procrastinator, yet she completed two novels (so far), Rollins has also managed her own business, traveled, and put her big toe on the path to Enlightenment via several Buddhist retreats. She has survived marriage and widowhood, and the loss of some lovely dogs. She currently resides with cats in Virginia.
