The concept for "GOOD FORTUNE" came to Leslie Bratspis one rainy afternoon while she and her husband drank tea and ate fortune cookies. She grabbed paper and pen and started writing notes for a novel. For the next two weeks the story and characters dominated her thinking before she actually wrote a single word. After she started, Lyle and Tom spontaneously appeared! Many of the vignettes are taken from her own experiences and she transferred them to the lives of her characters. With her combined interests in cultural anthropology, metaphysics and meditation, she researched Chinese culture and customs aided by two Chinese friends. An equal amount of information came to her through a series of synchronistic events. In 2005 Leslie, with her husband Ned, and their Golden Retrievers relocated from southern California to the beautiful and historic Key Peninsula area just minutes away from Gig Harbor, Washington. A former teacher, floral designer, and legal assistant, since retirement she has devoted much of her time to writing and has completed her second novel "VANILLA GRASS" currently in the editing stage. Ms. Bratspis is a member of Lakebay Writers, Friends of the Library, and volunteers for Evergreen Golden Retriever Rescue, Angel Guild, and The Mustard Seed Project.
