About Lindsay Leslie:
A diary keeper, a journal writer, a journalism major, a public relations executive—Lindsay Leslie has always operated in a world of written words. When she became a mom and began to tell her kids bedtime stories, Lindsay connected the dots to children’s literature. She likes to bring her unique outlook on life, quirky humor, and play with words to the page in picture books.
Lindsay has always been an athlete of some sort. She played basketball, ran track, and played volleyball up until her high school years, and then volleyball became everything. Lindsay played varsity as well as club during those years. She also competed in club athletics throughout college. As an adult, she completed both a sprint- and Olympic-distance triathlon, was an avid cyclist for many years, and is now into weightlifting and running. Being an athlete is an “everyday thing” for her, and it shows.
