L. Penelope (also writing as Leslye Penelope) has been writing since she could hold a pen and loves getting lost in the worlds in her head. She is an award-winning author of fantasy and paranormal romance.

She was born in the Bronx, just after the birth of hip hop, but left before she could acquire an accent. Equally left and right-brained, she studied Film at Howard University and minored in Computer Science. This led to a graduate degree in Multimedia and a career in website development. She's also an award-winning independent filmmaker, co-founded a literary magazine, and sometimes dreams in HTML.

Leslye lives in Maryland with her husband and their furry dependents. Sign up for new release information and giveaways on her website: http:/

L. Penelope answered Diana-christie Biancardi's question: L. Penelope
Thank you! I don't have any current plans for a sequel to The Monsters We Defy, but a lot of people have asked, so I'm considering it. I am working on another historical fantasy that takes place about ten years later in a different part of the countr See Full Answer
