Leslie Conner was born in a small southern town and spent most of her adult life wondering why. She has lived on both coasts and several places in between and has considered her experiences and the strange people she’s met as justifiable fodder for fiction. She now calls Illinois home and shares her place with her rescue animals. Her flash fiction piece entitled “Lucidity” will appear in the H.P. Lovecraft Insane Asylum Anthology, and she is currently seeking representation for her debut novel.
