Leslie has always been a writer, though it wasn't until retirement that she finally found time for the stories that tapped on her consciousness throughout years of teaching and parenting. In the Red Canoe is her first picture book.
"My writing celebrates what matter most to me, family, friendship and the natural world. It is how I make sense of a life that is often uncomfortably unpredictable. It is how I express my gratitude for the beauty in the world and in the hearts of those I love." - Leslie A. Davidson
