Leslie Allen


I live on the Upper Peninsula of Michigan near the city of Marquette. I grew up in Wilmette, Illinois, and attended Lawrence University in Appleton, Wisconsin. Later I spent time at the University of Missouri-Columbia, studying journalism in the graduate school. I have worked as a freelance writer, journalist, and in many other capacities.

I originally published "Dandy Do-Little" in a limited quantity in 1996. It is my first e-book, and I have set a sales goal of one million paid downloads with time irrelevant. If you can help with reaching that goal, a million thanks.

The web link below is for "500 lbs. of beeswax," my effort to turn 500 pounds of raw beeswax into cash; and the blog link is to "an upper peninsula journal," a collection of pieces I've written on the Upper Peninsula and winter, my dogs, my mom's golf bag, a pirate, a beekeeper, summer, the county fair, peepers, and, among other things, publishing "Dandy Do-Little."

Thanks for stopping by.
