Hello! I'm Lesley

Welcome to my website. As you have found your way here, you would probably like to discover a little bit about me. I am embarking on the second part of my portfolio career, having lingered rather longer than most on the first part. I am a nearly-retired dentist intent on becoming a children's author. After a long and happy working life spent enhancing smiles, I now enjoy trying to induce smiles with my stories.

Since 2009 I have been lucky enough to spend some considerable time in the Turks and Caicos Islands. The sunshine, the landscape, exotic creatures and happy, fun-loving people have inspired my writing. I am currently working on a group of picture books featuring some of my favourite Caicos Creatures. I look forward to sharing them with you very soon.

When I'm not sitting at my laptop or burying my nose in a book, you can find me on a tennis court or on a golf course. I'm a keen swimmer, I play the piano (not nearly as well as I should after all these years) and I love to cook. My husband, John, and I are pretty social animals and we entertain friends often. When we are in the UK there is always something that needs trimming, mowing or planting in the garden to occupy our quieter moments. Oh yes - and I take the occasional photo!

Thanks for stopping by!
