Author Spotlight

This feature that will highlight and introduce the works of Canadian YA authors. I’m doing this mostly for self-education because unfortunately I’m not all that aware of the amazing talent that exists in my own country. (I might shake it up from time to time and include an American author.)

Lesley Livingston

Author blurb: Lesley is a YA author and actor living in Toronto, Canada. She enjoys mythology, folk lore and otherworldly stories such as those that feature faeries. She has a Master’s degree in English from the University of Toronto with a specialization in Shakespeare and Arthurian literature. She is also a founding member and principal performer with the Tempest Theatre Group. She is currently writing the last novel in her very successful Wondrous Strange trilogy.
“Wondrous Strange is an urban fantasy that weaves elements of A Midsummer Night’s Dream together with teen romance and chilling adventure that erupts when dangerous faeries invade the human world through a gate in Central Park” – great summary from her blog

The third book is set to be released at the end of the year.
