Leslie Bratspis is the daughter of Hollywood novelist and screenwriter, Irving Shulman. She grew up in southern California, and graduated from Los Angeles Valley College with an Associate of Arts in English. She then earned both a Bachelor of Arts in Anthropology and a Standard Elementary Teaching Credential from California State University Northridge. She has been an elementary school teacher, floral designer, and legal secretary at Walt Disney Studios.
Leslie also studied art at various schools and workshops with an emphasis on portraits and figures. In her spare time she sketches and paints. Her combined interests in cultural anthropology, metaphysics and meditation prompted her to research and write her debut novel, "GOOD FORTUNE."
Her husband, Ned, is a Marriage and Family Therapist, award-winning poet, and teacher of Mindfulness Meditation. In 2005 Leslie, Ned, and their Golden Retrievers relocated from southern California to the beautiful and historic Key Peninsula area just minutes away from Gig Harbor, Washington. Since retirement, she has devoted more of her time to writing. She is currently working on her second novel.
Leslie is a member of Lakebay Writers, Friends of the Library, and volunteers for Evergreen Golden Retriever Rescue and Angel Guild.
