Featured Authors

Might it be my love for books, the written word, my own curiosity, or a combination…but I absolutely adore connecting with authors.

I am grateful to work with a group of brilliant publicists at NYC publishing houses, including, but not limited to: Algonquin Books, Beacon Press, Dutton Books, Grove Atlantic, Harper Collins/William Morrow, Henry Holt, Kensington, Little A, MacMillian Publishers (St. Martin’s Press, Thomas Dunne Books, Flatiron Books), MIRA, Simon & Schuster/Touchstone, Sourcebooks, The Random House Family (Penguin, Berkley, Viking, Pamela Dorman) Park Row Books, & Tin House. 

My reading tastes tend to gravitate toward literary, upmarket fiction often with a historical slant. I’m also a sucker for Midwestern Gothics, psych suspense/thriller, &  memoir; particularly with a mental health/illness aspect.

  1. Hi Leslie!

    I used to blog for the International Bipolar Foundation and I enjoyed reading your blog posts about having a parent with bipolar; my father had bipolar disorder and I was diagnosed with postpartum bipolar disorder ten years ago. My mom was a speech pathologist and I heard her use the term “apraxia” often-I must tell her about your book!

    Would you consider reviewing a memoir? My book “Birth of a New Brain – Healing from Postpartum Bipolar Disorder” (Post Hill Press) is endorsed by the bestselling authors Kay Redfield Jamison, Mark Lukach, and Matt Samet, and by BP Magazine’s publisher Joanne Doan. I have studied writing with Page Stegner, Kathryn Chetkovich, Louis Owens, Frances Lefkowitz, and Madeleine L’Engle. Thanks for letting me know!

    Take care,

    Dyane Harwood
