Biography

Leslie Ann Moore was born in Los Angeles, California at the tail-end of the baby boom. From an early age, her parents exposed her to the beauty and wonder of art, music, and literature. She learned to read before she started school, and books were her constant companions.

For as long as she can remember, Leslie Ann's been a storyteller. As a child, she made up tales to entertain family, friends and anyone else who'd listen! At night, she'd lie in bed, while elaborate 'movies' screened in her head, complete with distinct characters, complex dialogue, and action sequences. She didn't think this strange; it was just something she did to entertain herself.

She started reading science fiction in middle school. The Martian Chronicles, The Foundation Trilogy, Rendevouz With Rama, the works of Andre Norton; Leslie Ann loved the classics and stuck pretty much to hard sci fi, until one day, a friend showed her a book called 'The Hobbit'.

The works of J.R.R. Tolkein introduced her to the world of fantasy literature, and her own stories began to change.Today, Leslie Ann writes fantasy, science fiction, and the occasional foray into general fiction.
