Leslie Lynch gives voice to characters who struggle to find healing for their brokenness—and discover unconventional solutions to life’s unexpected twists.

Leslie lives near Louisville, Kentucky, with her husband and a rescued feral-turned-sweetheart cat. While not engaged in wrestling the beautiful and prolific greenery of their yard into submission, she flies light aircraft, loves the exuberant creativity and color of quilting and pottery…and, of course, writes.

Several years ago,…moreOpal McBride, of Opal's Jubilee, sprang into my mind one morning, fully formed but with her history shrouded in mystery. Several years ago, then-governor Ernie Fletcher of Kentucky granted clemency, pardon, or early parole hearings to twenty-one women convicted of killing their abusers, often after enduring many years of such treatment. It didn't take long for me to discover that Opal could have been one of those women. The story took off from there... (less)

Thoughts on Unholy Bonds: a response to a reader's passing comment...

First, I want to reiterate my gratitude to the many people who’ve chosen to spend a few dollars and a few hours reading my books. Thank you! By reading what I have written, you bring the book to life, completing it in a way that the author never can. What a rich blessing, hopefully for both author and reader!

Thomas Merton
“My Lord God, I have no idea where I am going. I do not see the road ahead of me. I cannot know for certain where it will end. Nor do I really know myself, and the fact that I think that I am following your will does not mean that I am actually doing so. But I believe that the desire to please you does in fact please you. And I hope I have that desire in all that I am doing. I hope that I will never do anything apart from that desire. And I know that if I do this you will lead me by the right road though I may know nothing about it. Therefore will I trust you always though I may seem to be lost and in the shadow of death. I will not fear, for you are ever with me, and you will never leave me to face my perils alone.”
Thomas Merton, Thoughts in Solitude
