Goodreads Author

Mississauga, Ontario, Canada


Bret Easton Ellis, Joan Didion, Tom Wolfe

Member Since
December 2008

Born and raised in Toronto, Margaret moved to the U.S. to attend Northwestern University where she studied Communications and English. After a brief stint in journalism, she began pursuing a career in the entertainment industry, which ultimately meant becoming a waitress. After working at a number of clubs on the Sunset Strip and in Hollywood, she realized that she was in fact using her journalism background to research the hospitality industry sub-culture in L.A. and ultimately write her debut novel The Cocktail Hours: a Hollywood insider tale. Los Angeles has been a big influence for Lester and her favorite authors include Bret Easton Ellis and Joan Didion. She continues to live in Hollywood.
