I am a happily married mother of three (two boys and one girl). I live in a very small town in Alabama. Never lived anywhere else. I’ve been writing since my early twenties, but I couldn’t seem to finish a book. I’ve started self-publishing with the encouragement from my mom. Without her encouragement, I don’t think I would’ve done it. She always supported me and writing is something I’ve always enjoyed doing. As long as I enjoy it, I’ll continue to do it. I’ve learned already that I can’t please everyone. Not all reviews will be good, not all reviews will be bad. I’m the one that has to be happy with my work.

I get my inspiration from life experiences, movies, television, other authors, and music. Music is definitely a big influence on my w

I do have a FB group that's pretty active and I do a lot of teasers, snippets, and cover reveals in there. It's called J.L. Leslie's Lovelies if you have that social media platform. <3 (less)

I won't pick one of my own couples because I'm biased towards all of them. Obviously. My mom was a huge fan of Gone With The Wind and it wore off on me. I love Scarlett O'Hara and Rhett Butler. Scarlett is sassy and feisty and just determined not to fall in love with Rhett. Of course, he's determined he's going to have her. They go through so many ups and downs...fighting to maintain their home, their marriage, and losing a child. If you've seen the movie or read the book, you know how it ends...sort of in a cliffhanger style if you think about it. Will they work it out or not? I like to think they're both too stubborn to let each other go. Sounds a lot like the romance novels we all love to read now, doesn't it? :-)(less)

“Yeah, you’re in shock!” I say. “What about me? I have sex once, in my whole life, and I get knocked up! Then the man I had sex with, who was supposed to be in love with me, sleeps with every willing woman in Chapelwood!” ​“I had to stay away from you!” he yells at me, rising to his feet and throwing his hands in the air. “Your fucking daddy was going to destroy my family! Destroy my life!”
J.L. Leslie, Something Honorable

“I am left standing breathless and wondering who he is. I touch my fingers to my lips and lick them, tasting the fire he left behind.”
J.L. Leslie, Demons From My Past

“His lips brush against mine…softly…pleadingly…as if he’s scared he’s going to break me if he kisses me too hard. Perhaps he will break me. I know deep down he has the power to do just that.”
J.L. Leslie, Demons From My Past

“Paxton…” Hearing her say my name, almost pleading with me, makes me lose control. I grab her and hoist her on top of the counter, smashing my lips to hers.”
