Leslie Carmichael has been inside the Great Pyramid at Giza, has watched the world turn purple during a solar eclipse, and has been an honoured guest at a Canadian-
Scottish-Taiwanese wedding. She has swum in the Red Sea, picked amethysts off the ground in Thunder Bay, watched a space shuttle land and cooked a medieval dinner for 200 people. She has worn a corset, a suit of armour and a Klingon outfit (but not all at the same time!).
Leslie likes to work on miniature dolls and dollhouses when she's not writing. She can crochet three-dimensional objects without a pattern, but finds knitting way too complicated. She sings soprano in a choir and loves just about any type of music.
Leslie lives in Calgary with her husband, three children and two demanding cats.
She is available for school, library and association visits for readings, and talks on:
Leslie is a member of CANSCAIP, SFCanada, IFWA (The Imaginative Fiction Writers' Association) and YABS (Young Alberta Book Society).
Her other writing credits include short stories, articles and creative non-fiction. She also writes Comic Interactive Mystery Plays for Calgary's Pegasus Performances.
