It was recently announced that author L.A. Banks is gravely ill. She was recently diagnosed with late-stage adrenal cancer, which is incredibly rare but no less deadly. A group of friends, authors, and editors has banded together to auction off items most writers will love. All proceeds go to help Leslie and her family with their mounting expenses.
After reading many of her books, I was lucky enough to meet Leslie at the RT Convention last April. She is warm, funny, and inspirational. We all love writing, we all love working with words… but Leslie’s face lights up when she talks about her process, and her hearty laughs tickle you into laughing along with her. From her, I learned how to do story research at WalMart (yes!), and about a thousand other great ideas.
