Leslie Hachtel was born in Ohio, raised in New York and has been a gypsy most of her adult life. Her various jobs, including licensed veterinary technician, caterer, horseback riding instructor for the disabled and advertising media buyer have given her a wealth of experiences.
However, it has been writing that has consistently been her passion.
"The Dream Dancer" is her fifth romance novel and her first with Blue Tulip.
Leslie lives in Cordova, Tennessee with a fabulously supportive engineer husband, stepson Matt and her writing buddy, Jakita, a terrier.
