Leslie Tall Manning
Leslie Tall Manning is an award-winning novelist who writes about grownups craving change and discovering it in ways they never expected (KNOCK ON WOOD, GAGA, and MAGGIE’s DREAM). She also writes about teenagers who stumble into adulthood headfirst (UPSIDE DOWN IN A LAURA INGALLS TOWN and I AM ELEPHANT, I AM BUTTERFLY).
She grew up in Western Maryland, studied theatre and film in Southern California, and now resides in North Carolina where she writes full time. When she isn’t clacking away at the computer keys or conducting research for her books, she loves walking the river in her tiny historic town, traveling with her artist husband, and laughing every chance she gets. She is proudly represented by the TriadaUS Literary Agency.
