'P'...patience, persistence, painful, plodding...never mind. Forget my middle initial. Just call me Leslie.


Background Information

Born in Kansas City, Missouri, I hated the constant moves of my early childhood, which took me to California, Texas, and Georgia. I grew up mostly in Georgia, went to Texas, and then Nuevo Laredo, Mexico briefly before moving to Laredo, Texas. My strange adolescence--which at one point included 25 horses and ponies, an African lion and adecaying, haunted antebellum--gave me a lifetime of stories; I'm married and have four children, fodder for additional tales. Add to that grandkids, a great dane, the pit bull I swore never, ever to have, and a sometimes cat, and stories are there, whether or not the time to write presents itself day to day.


When people wonder why I write, I always secretly wonder why they don't. . .I can't remember not writing. What I say, though, is that I have always done it and can't help myself. That writers should read, that they should care. . .and that they must write. What else is there?


And, in seeking new avenues to write, I will always be profoundly grateful to Al Gore for inventing the internet, as it provides such myriad opportunities to express my thoughts.



Accomplishments

Current releases from Crimson Romance include Wildflower Redemption, Unattainable, and Take Me Out. La Llorona (The Wailing Woman) is a self-published anthology of short fiction, essay, and poetry about the legend of the 'Wailing' (or weeping) Woman of Mexican lore.

Garcia is a certified elementary and bilingual teacher (Texas),with a master's in English from Texas A&M International University. She has attended the NABE (National Association of Bilingual Educators) in Philadelphia, participated in a pilot Dual Language bilingual model program at her school, has presented to her district on the implementation of brain-based learning strategies, and created her school's writing lab, the first of its kind in her district at the elementary level.

Additional Information

My first romance, Love's Lasting Song will give readers a glimpse into the border culture of deep South Texas. I have recently collaboratedon a cookbook, Cooking By the Book,and an inspirational e-book, Musings: Authors Do It Write,that arepresented free online as a gift to all readers. This cookbook presents foods and recipes directly from fictional and nonfictional works by a large and diverse group of writers. Musings offers insight into the writer's mind and soul. Both are free at RioRendezvous.Now available signed copies of Love's Lasting Song just click on the "Buy Direct" link for your signed copy. Also--interested educators and parents who feel "assessment" is undermining education--I'd love to hear your thoughts on the matter. Somewhere out there is a solution.
