Leslie Hodgson (pronounced with a silent “g”, Hod-son) currently resides in the Seattle, Washington area with her husband and three young daughters. Leslie has always had a fascination with the night sky and has lived with horses her entire life. Her nickname growing up was “barn girl” as she was never far from her horses. She started a business combining two of her three favorite things: kids and horses. Her other favorite thing is writing, and she hopes to share the magic of the night sky, animal companionship and endless possibilities with you!

The #1 thing a successful writer will tell you is, "If you want to be a writer, then write... every day." As I've been focusing on getting my first book marketed, I haven't been writing very much. I do blog a lot, but I haven't been living in the world of my Shooting Stars characters for a while. Might also have something to do with my adorable little rascals keeping me so busy.

Shooting Stars (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:33PM
Description: Earth’s scientists say stars are burning balls of gases—but what if what we see is just a veil to hide what is truly there? There are numerous worlds in our Universe and in the realm of the twelve Zodiac Constellations, the tyrant Gershon has overpowered the true ruler of the Zodiacs and he wants all in the royal line killed. Hidden on Earth from him are two teenage siblings, Stella and Isaac. They have had a very unique life on Earth, but don’t know they are out of the ordinary until a series of mysterious, tragic and exciting events open their minds to the real Universe they live in, who they are, and that they have the powers to possibly free the Zodians. Isaac and Stella are caught in a whirlwind of events both tragic and exciting as they travel the Universe and team with creatures from Constellations such as Pegasus and Draco to help protect them from Gershon who is fiercely hunting them. Shooting Stars is refreshing fantasy that will keep young adult readers turning the pages as they encounter a new kind of magic, the possibilities the Universe holds, escape, animal companionship, self-discovery and budding relationships.
