Lesli Richardson is the writer behind the curtain of her better-known pen name, Tymber Dalton (her "wild child" side). She lives in the Tampa Bay region of Florida with her husband, writer Jon Dalton, (aka "The World's Best Husband™") and too many pets. When she's not playing D&D with her friends or shooting skeet, she's a part-time Viking shield-maiden in training, among other pursuits. The USA Today Bestselling Author (as Tymber) and two-time EPIC award winner is also the author of over one hundred and sixty books and counting.

She lives in her own little world, but it's okay, because they all know her there.

She also loves to hear from readers! Please check out her website for links, and to sign up for updates to keep abreast of the latest

Topics Mentioning This Author

“I notice that you use plain, simple language, short words and brief sentences. That is the way to write English―it is the modern way and the best way. Stick to it; don't let fluff and flowers and verbosity creep in. When you catch an adjective, kill it. No, I don't mean utterly, but kill most of them―then the rest will be valuable. They weaken when they are close together. They give strength when they are wide apart. An adjective habit, or a wordy, diffuse, flowery habit, once fastened upon a person, is as hard to get rid of as any other vice.”
Mark Twain

“Truth is stranger than fiction, but it is because Fiction is obliged to stick to possibilities; Truth isn't.”
Mark Twain, Following the Equator: A Journey Around the World

“The only reason for being a professional writer is that you can't help it.”
Leo Rosten

“I'm living so far beyond my income that we may almost be said to be living apart.”

Emily I absolutely loved Reluctant Dom. Samantha Blair recommended it to me after I read her book Generational Sins. Your book is such an amazing story and had me balling my eyes out, which is only the second book to ever make me do that.

Ed Rambeau Thanks for accepting my friend request, Tymber. You seem like an interesting person, as well as quite the prolific author, so feel free to tell me more about yourself and perhaps we can grow to become even greater friends. I, myself, am a singer/songwriter/actor who has recently turned author. My 2 top ten recordings were CONCRETE & CLAY (as a singer) and NAVY BLUE (as a writer)...both in the early 1960's. My first novel is an unusual murder mystery entitled: FORBIDDEN STEPS.

Regards, and have a great day, Ed

Tymber Dalton 5 Blue Ribbons for "Love at First Bight!"


"LOVE AT FIRST BIGHT got me. It totally got me. However, to say why would mean giving away the story and that is something that I will not do. Each reader deserves to enjoy this skillfully written and sexually scorching book on their own. Be assured that LOVE AT FIRST BIGHT is truly a fun and frolic filled time. I am hooked on Tymber Dalton – totally and completely."

Tymber Dalton Found this in Google alerts for "Out of the Darkness" (writing as Lesli Richardson) a little bit ago!!


Rated 4/5 halos! Whoo hoo!

Melissa Santangelo Thanks for being a friend.
I will be featured on The Authors Radio Show all day tomorrow at www.theauthorsshow.com and my book will be $5.00 tomorrow only at www.thekeytolifeisbalance.com.
Many Blessings!

Lee (waving to you from Siren-BookStrand :)

Thanks for being my goodreads buddy, Tymber!

My new romantic suspense, The Twist is a Bookstrand #1 Bestseller! A story of mind-bending control and unnerving metamorphosis, The Twist unravels the tale of a hotshot consultant as he struggles to foil a plot to steal $12 million and to rescue the feisty, female scientist who has stolen his heart.


Have a great day!

Tymber Dalton 5 Blue Ribbons for "Love Slave for Two!!"

5 Blue Ribbons: "I was enthralled and entranced the entire time it took for me to read Love Slave for Two. Tyler and Thomas are a loving couple; a strong couple who love each other very much. But something is missing - not about their love - but with how much love they have to share. They want Nevvie, a girl who comes into their lives on a weekly basis to be the recipient of that love. They want her for their third and the plans they hatch to make that come true is elaborate and well thought out. Each man wants her to know she is loved and each accomplishes that fact. The time and patience each display with Nevvie is beautiful - I wanted to move her out and take her place. Nevvie isn't used to having someone love her. The fact that all of a sudden she has two men loving her - two men who are supposed to be gay - just seems surreal. She loves them and decides to take a chance with them and never look back. Their love is scorching hot, hence why Love Slave for Two has a scorching hot rating with Siren Publishing - but that does not explain how the flames of desire burned. Between the sheets, these two enigmatic men bring Nevvie, and themselves, pleasure unlike anything I have ever read. Tastefully written and intoxicating erotic, Love Slave for Two is addictively passionate. I could not stop reading this book and could have cried when it ended. Instead, I went back to page one and read it again! Tymber Dalton is now on my list of ménage writing authors to watch!" -- Natasha Smith, Romance Junkies

Tymber Dalton Five Star Review - ReviewYourBook.com


"Love Slave For Two is one of the best stories I've read in years…and I've read a lot of stories. Tymber Dalton examines the family dynamics of a nontraditional family. I do not normally enjoy male/male stories but this one has depth, love, and romance. Tyler, Thomas, and Nevvie work well together. Their differences harmonize each other. The
intimate scenes were hot and steamy. The plot is more than intimate scenes. It is a well-developed drama. This is a must read for fans of romantica."

*thunk as I faint!*

What is so gratifying to me as an author is that not only did she like it, but it's normally a genre she wouldn't enjoy and she STILL liked it. Yes, it's a m/m/f menage but the men do have a relationship before they meet the heroine.

Whoo hoo!!!
