The daughter of a law professor and a potter, Leslie Karst spent her early years in various locales: Columbus, Ohio; South America and Mexico; Oxford, England; and Santa Monica, California. She moved from Southern California to Santa Cruz to study English literature and romance languages at UCSC, and has been a Northern California gal ever since.Leslie went on to attend Stanford Law School and then worked for twenty years as the research and appellate attorney for a civil law firm in Santa Cruz County. Not satisfied with just practicing law, however, she went back to school and received a degree in culinary arts from Cabrillo College.Now retired from the law, she spends her time cooking, singing alto in her local community chorus, gardening, cycling, and of course writing. Leslie and her wife, Robin, and their Jack Russell mix, Ziggy, split their time between Santa Cruz and Hilo, Hawaii.
