M.A. Leslie isn't just one person, but two. We are a married writing team from Southern NJ. There we raise our two young children, work, live, and write.

M. This is one of my favorite books. I don't remember the last time I read an author that wove characters and plot in the way that George R.R. Martin does. That was an amazing book and I am glad my wife has already bought me the next few to read.

M.A. Leslie Today, we had our first fan comment on FB about our book. It wasn't a friend or family member. It was an honest to goodness stranger that bought our book, read it, and liked it. I know that the book has only been out for a minimal time, but this small step is an exciting one.
