Les Farley


Although I started this journey a little late in life (54) I suppose it was inevitable that I take this road since I've always had a very active imagination. While writing my first book, "An Unlikely Source", I was constantly planning things that would be put into the second and third books. With each successive book the same holds true and the ideas keep flowing. I never dreamed it would be this exciting.

My friends at work and church know me as comical, childish and fun loving. I am the eternal optimist and that is how I am able to bring these ideas out of my mind for the rest of the world to read. Ultimately I must thank God for his kindness and for giving me the idea for my first book. Those who have read my books have given them very good reviews. Thanks to those of you who have found your way to this page.

Smashwords Interview

What is the greatest joy of writing for you?
The human mind is never inactive. Thought processes are nonstop. I derive great joy from converting my thoughts and imagination into something that other people can absorb and, hopefully, enjoy. It's also hard work and that makes for a satisfied writer.
What do your fans mean to you?
Whether they are personal friends or complete strangers, they are the foundation of any success that I might attain. I'll never get used to hearing anyone speak of me as 'having fans'. That's just not what I'm about. The most humbling experience that I've had is the fact that my books are used for book reports by one of the families that I'm acquainted with. Their son actually reads them and reports on them in class. That's amazing.
