Leslie Anne Bustard lives in a century-old row house in Lancaster City, PA, with her husband, Ned. Here they love to offer food and friendship to folks and collect a plethora of artwork, music, and books. She spent much of her adult years home-schooling her three girls and teaching literature, poetry, art appreciation, and writing to other children in various homeschooling co-ops. Leslie also taught middle school literature and writing at a local classical school, as well as produced high school and children's theater. She currently writes for The Cultivating Project, The Black Barn Online, Story Warren, and Calla Press. Leslie loves museum-ing and watching movies with her family. Her first book was Wild Things and Castles in the Sky: A to Choosing the Best Books for Children (Square Halo Books, 2022).
