Leslie Jones Headshot 2Award-winning and RITA®-nominated  author Leslie Jones writes military suspense with a dash of romance. She loves alpha heroes and strong heroines. She is truly grateful to the men and women of our Armed Forces for their dedication and sacrifice. It is because of them that we sleep well at night.

She’s been an IT geek, graphics designer, Army intelligence officer, and Army wife. She draws on her military experiences when she writes.

She’s lived in Alaska, Korea, Belgium, Germany, and various other exotic locations (including New Jersey). She found her forever home in Arizona. There aren’t many who understand her love for the raw, primal beauty of the Southwestern desert. It teems with vitality. It boils life down to its essence. Survive, or don’t.

A 2016 RITA® nominee for Best First Book, she’s been a member of the Romance Writers of America® and Desert Rose RWA since 2010. She currently serves on the Desert Rose Board of Directors for her 3rd non-consecutive term, and has chaired several committees over the years. Her books can be found at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and HarperCollins Publishers. She is represented by Sarah E. Younger of the Nancy Yost Literary Agency in New York.
