Leslie Murray was born in Flint, Michigan, to Canadian
parents. She was the youngest of five children, and
according to them the most spoiled by far. According to
her, it was well deserved. She spent her younger years
playing the flute in band, skateboarding, jumping ramps
on her bike and participating in sports of every kind.
She never owned a Barbie.
As a teen, Leslie moved to Texas with her family and
quickly discovered the dangers of the jalapeno, South
Padre Island sunburn, and fishbowl sized margaritas.
She spent her college years at Texas Christian University
(Go Frogs!) where she majored in Journalism. This led to a
career as copywriter and eventually creative director in
the print advertising/marketing industry.
Leslie's debut novel, Sharpshooter, was released by Sapphire Books Publishing in the fall of 2014. In 2015, Sharpshooter
won a Golden Crown Literary Award in the Romantic Suspense Intrigue/Adventure category.
She lives in South Florida with her partner of 27 years,
Cindy, and her tenacious Westie, Biscuit.
Welcome to My Author Page
After 9/11, an experimental branch of the U.S. government has been tasked with the mission of proactively putting a stop to terrorism. They have sent a team to eliminate a financier responsible for funding the worst of these organizations. Everything is going according to plan.
Until it's not.
The team is ambushed, and when the mission is looking its darkest, it goes from bad to worse. Former Marine scout sniper Seven Michelis is a black ops sharpshooter now injured and on the run for her life. Peace Corps volunteer Dr. Jenny MacKenzie defies good sense and sets out to help a stranger in need. What she finds is something else entirely.
From the rugged foothills of the Andes through the dense forests of the Amazon river basin, Seven and Jenny fight to survive the perils of being hunted through Bolivia by a killer hell bent on homicide. Who can they trust, and what fresh hell awaits them if and when they make it home? Will they survive long enough to explore their growing attraction?
A mission gone horribly wrong.
A vicious killer who will stop at nothing.
Two women on the run for their very lives.
October 8-12 in Palm Springs, California
