FAN of the MONTH – Leslie

Hi, my name is Leslie and I’m a book-aholic. This addiction to books started as a young child with Little House on the Prairie, Nancy Drew, Sidney Sheldon and countless other books. I’ve rarely met a book I didn’t like with the exception being Stephen King – his books scare me! I read Pet Cemetery in college and said no more – I have too vivid of an imagination. I turned my love of books into a book review blog – I use a paw rating system in honor of my two 4-legged babies that sometimes read with me. I’ve been married for 12 years (to a guy that rarely reads, how did that happen?!) and outside of reading, I love to cook, scrapbook and make cards and travel.

I’ve known Leslie from my Bette’s Friends and Fans Club and appreciate all the wonderful reviews she posts of my book. I had the pleasure of learning what a thorough reader she was when she participated in my SocialBook event for The Loft. Please take a moment and stop by her blog and see what she’s reading!

I’ve got a little care package going out to Leslie in appreciation for all the hours she’s dedicated to reading.

About the author

Bette Lee Crosby

USA Today Bestselling and Award-winning novelist Bette Lee Crosby's books are "Well-crafted storytelling populated by memorable characters caught up in equally memorable circumstances." - Midwest Book Review The Seattle Post Intelligencer says Crosby's writing is, "A quirky mix of Southern flair, serious thoughts about important things in life and madcap adventures." Samantha from Reader's Favorite raves, "Crosby writes the type of book you can't stop thinking about long after you put it down." "Storytelling is in my blood," Crosby laughingly admits, "My mom was not a writer, but she was a captivating storyteller, so I find myself using bits and pieces of her voice in most everything I write." It is the wit and wisdom of that Southern Mama Crosby brings to her works of fiction; the result is a delightful blend of humor, mystery and romance along with a cast of quirky charters who will steal your heart away. Her work was first recognized in 2006 when she received The National League of American Pen Women Award for a then unpublished manuscript. She has since gone on to win nineteen awards for her work; these include: TheRoyal Palm Literary Award, the FPA President's Book Award Gold Medal, Reader's Favorite Award Gold Medal, and the Reviewer's Choice Award.
