Leslie Budewitz


(Leslie Ann Budewitz)
USA flag

Leslie Budewitz blends her passion for food, great mysteries, and her native Montana in The Food Lovers' Village Mysteries for Berkley Prime Crime. New York Times best-selling mystery writer Sofie Kelly calls it A delicious new series. Death al Dente, first in the series, won the 2013 Agatha Award for Best First Novel.

A Montana native, Leslie graduated from Seattle University and Notre Dame Law School. After practicing in Seattle for several years—and shopping and eating her way through the Pike Place Market regularly—she returned to Montana, where she still practices law part-time. Killing people—on the page—is more fun.

Leslie loves to cook, eat, hike, travel, garden, and paint—not necessarily in that order. She lives in northwest Montana with her husband, Don Beans, a singer-songwriter and doctor of natural medicine, and their Burmese cat, Ruff, a book cover model and an avid bird watcher.
