About Leslie

Leslie Hooton is many things: a fabulous friend, a powerful speaker, a flower enthusiast, a lover of language, a seeker of color in a black-and-white world, but most recently she became a newly published author. You don’t want to miss her fantastic debut novel, Before Anyone Else.

Hi, I’m Leslie….

I’m a trained observer who likes to write and tell stories. Growing up in a small Alabama town, I became intrigued by people and their quirky lives.

I learned everyone has interesting stories, Even me. During these crazy times I’m still looking to meet and talk to new people “virtually”. I would love to join in on your zoom book clubs, so don’t hesitate to reach out!

Some people have a stroke of luck; I had a stroke at birth.

My Favorite Quote:

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy; they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.

Marcel Proust
